For a long time I was wanting to pass on my knowledge and skills in my craft. Prior to making jewelry I was a private Spanish Teacher and loved teaching small classes and one on one. I especially love teaching children because of their willingness to learn and their creative abandon. The first jewelry sessions are coming to an end and I am so proud of all of the hard work that came from these students.
I am mostly self taught and develop many of my designs through simple experimentation. Discovering a new technique or applying an old technique in a new way is very exciting for me. I often have middle of the night "brain waves" and some not so brilliant, "brilliant ideas." It is what keeps the process fresh.
