My jewelry designs distill the abstract essence of natural landscapes and physical and scientific phenomena. When I discovered vitreous enameling, it unleased the power of color and expanded options for texture in my designs. I employ a variety of enameling techniques including sifting, basse taille, champleve and cloisonne. I like applying transparent enamels to fine silver that has been hammered or stamped with textures and designs that show through the glass. Sometimes, I add glass beads and frit to my enamel surfaces for additional texture.
My cloisonne brooch-pendant, Under a Microscope, is a glimpse into world we can only see with the aid of technology.
