||I have made
jewelry since I was very young. I began my formal
art-metal education in high school. I refined my metal-work
and artistic skills at the University of Wisconsin
- Madison and at Madison Area Technical College. At
this time, I was also a designer at the Jeweler's
Workshop in Madison, Wisconsin.
Several years ago, while exploring why my career as
a lawyer wasnt completely fulfulling, I realized
I need to pursue my passion for art and design more
seriously. I started using the cutting-edge medium
of silver clay to make earrings, pendants, bracelets,
charms, and neckpieces. Since becoming a certified
artisan of silver and gold clay, I also have been
teaching classes on jewelry design and my classes
have been very well received.
