My grandmother’s treasure trove inspired me to collect my own jewelry. My love for Turquoise began as a teenager and still prevails. I favor Native American jewelry and design, and as fate would have it, the stitch I use for my bracelets is found in historic and contemporary Native American beadwork. I enjoy working with semiprecious stones, Czech and seed beads utilizing the colors and textures of nature. The Southwest landscape is truly inspiring and is such a magical place. I am so fortunate to be able to call Sedona, Arizona home.
