Interests

I love all things art! From painting, to clay sculpting, poetry, and music. I also am an avid gardener, and I grow many things from wildflowers, herbs, vegetables, fruit, and tropical houseplants. I get a lot of inspiration from my garden, and my paintings for my metal art jewelry.

Skills and Techniques

All my metal art creations are created by me, by hand. I cut, form, texture, and set pieces together using cold connection techniques. Without solder, I make metal flower, or butterflies, for example, and set them on bracelets, necklaces, etc. using rivets. I am now learning how to make my own rivets using copper wire.

Get to Know

I started doing wire wrapped jewelry and created Bird's Eye Design in 2014. I have grown and learned so much about making jewelry since then, and my designs have now evolved into metal art jewelry. I am self-taught and my creations are completely handcrafted. I make most of my own findings (ear wires, bezel settings, links, charms, embellishments and connectors) and I strive to learn new things to add to my jewelry making.
