I am a spoonie, attorney, jeweler, and crafter who enjoys making things and supporting small household economies. I was an environmental litigator and child advocate for years but chronic illness made it necessary for me to retire. The stress of practicing law was too much for my body to take. Faced with having to say goodbye to my hard earned practice I sought out a creative way to spend my time and make a living. I retrained as a silversmith with the Denver School of Metal Arts and began making jewelry in my cozy studio in Capitol Hill. I get great joy out of making art for people to wear and I love trying new mediums and techniques.
I work with crochet for fun and love giving handmade hats, scarves, and blankets to friends and family for holidays and birthdays. I paint in acrylics but, in my opinion, not well enough to hand out as presents. I do love to rework vintage items in the steampunk style, adding colors and locks and gears that bring to mind the aesthetic of the victorian age. When I began making jewelry I worked in Steampunk and Victorian designs most of the time. As my art has evolved over time I have moved towards a more elemental aesthetic. However, I still love the drama of Victorian jewelry and I do attempt to incorporate these design elements in all the work I perform.
