pendant for this unique necklace.

Wow, this summer flew by and it is already fall! That means the holidays are just around the corner and time to think about shopping. I have got you covered with fabulous new jewelry pieces at Green Chutes artists' co-op, the Boise Art Museum Store and Picture This Gallery.

Exciting, new display at Green Chutes that showcases my unique,
handmade jewelry.  Shopping at Green Chutes supports local artists
and the local economy.  Thank you for your support!

Detail of birdcage lamp at Green Chutes.  It holds a wide variety of
necklaces and earrings.  I had a blast making this funky birdcage lamp.

Detail of two necklaces from Green Chutes.  These one of
a kind pieces are made with a vintage heart and a vintage dog.

Vintage green glass pendant with a vintage crystal.  This necklace
has hand wrapped argentium wire and can be purchased at Green Chutes.

love is a yes or a no.  This piece can be purchased at the
Boise Art Museum Store.

I really wanted to keep this one!  It has a wonderful vintage
bulldog pendant and vintage crystals.  There is hand wrapped
rose gold filled wire and an oxidized sterling silver chain.  This

first post

Welcome to my new blog. I am very excited about posting new ideas and completed pieces. My jewelry can be purchased at Green Chutes artists' co-op on State Street, the Boise Art Museum Store and Picture This Gallery.

One of a kind wire work necklace with hand wrapped
rose gold filled wire and sterling silver wire.  The glass
lampwork beads were created by a local artisan.

This year I decided to go back to my roots and work in mixed media sculpture again. However, this time I am incorporating my jewelry into the artwork. Combining the two mediums creates a moment in time with the very human element of adornment.
This piece can be purchased at Green Chutes artists' co-op.
