My Story: My studio sits in the Foothills of Tucson, Arizona, where I find my inspiration every day. I love the colors and the textures from nature that surround me and try to recreate the desert in my glass and jewelry. I love gemstones and rocks of all colors and shapes. I love creating lampworked glass in the flame. And I like to use silver and gold to enhance my jewelry. I call my work a harmony of glass and metal.
Turquoise is the gem of the Southwest,
Here I have created a disk of fine silver that has been hammered. It measures 1 1/4 inches round. In the center is a beautiful Sleeping Beauty turquoise cabochon. Then I added a turquoise and black lampworked bead and hung it on a 16 inch sterling silver chain
