Born and raised Vermont, I first pursued my artistic ability in the comfort of my home under the guidance of a highly skilled crafty mother. While handmade art was always a passion in my life, I pursued and excelled at a career with IBM for 24 years.

 In 2000, I made my first pieces of jewelry: I strung pearls for my wedding party. I was instantly hooked and making jewelry has been a passion of mine ever since. In August of 2011, I decided to make a shift in my career direction and retired from IBM to become a skilled goldsmith and live my passion full time.

 I am inspired to work with Metal Freshwater Pearls, and Natural Gemstones. I love the coolness of their touch on my skin, the smooth or rough textures, and the multiple numbers of colors.


I have been blessed to train under and get guidance from Michael David Sturlin. I have taken many open and private workshops and gained great experience from him:  

  • The Process of Jewelry Design

  • Metalsmithing

  • Fundamentals in Forging Hand and Hammer

  • Fundamentals in Sawing

  • Advanced Techniques in Sawing, Piercing, and Carving 

  • The Goldsmith Studio Forms and Forging

  • Hand Knit Chains

  • Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts

  • Fabrication Classes  I,II,III 

  • Stone Setting Intensive
