Each piece of jewelry that I create is a one of a kind. My designs come to me intuitively, inspired by the world I see around me.
Once the idea sparks I get to work. Strips of plastic are cut, heated, and sculptured by hand. Homemade molds are used to create patterns, textures, and shapes. Many different methods are used for the large variety of pieces I develop. A spontaneous idea can bring about an imaginative and new approach. Plastic is light and easy to manipulate, so I love to experiment with bold shapes and sizes.
When the final touches are done I have made a piece of jewelry that I would love to wear, and have enjoyed making. A unique, handmade jewelry set or item which brings out the individual in whoever is wearing them.

This year I’d like to experiment more in different mediums. Monotyping is one of them. Below are my first attempts of it. I hope to have more fun with it this year!
Immersing into the class without any knowledge of the technique adds a lot of excitement and then, of course missteps… I think I’ll work more on these pieces later, by either drawing or painting on top… When it comes, I’ll know.
The black and white work was done first and after that I definitely needed colors! I wanted to capture a winter theme, some kind of white landscape, before next season will provide inspirations for new, warm and sunny works.
Surprisingly, spring always comes, even here, in Vermont! How lucky we are!
They are everywhere here! So beautiful, colorful and free!
This is only one of so many subjects you get inspired by while living in Vermont.
God, I love this place!
