Metalsmith in copper, brass and silver is my art form. Use of traditional metalsmithing: cutting, hammering, soldering makes beautiful pieces of very tiny artwork worn as adornment. Exquisite bead weaving produces intricate design in colored glass, stone and metal. Casted metal jewelry is an adaption of sculpture on a tiny scale. Metal forming uses the inherent properties of the metal to make unique design and form.
My metal art mentors are the late Professors John Wittensheim and my current professor: Jamie Goode. Branching out from my left brain medical practice and having the wonderful opportunity as a faculty wife has opportuned me to take numerous studio courses in metalsmith at Siena Heights University.
