Born, first generation American traditionally trained metal smith and jewelry design! Achieved success in retail stores for 20 years after obtaining a bachelor's degree at Florida State University and Illinois school of Horology. Experimenting with mixed media carvings, wax, bone, exotic woods combining these materials into precious metals!  I love to bring nature into wearable art and especially love anything nautical, however am happy to customize any one of a kind for you of any particular interest you have.


I am a local Hobe Sound resident with five children and five grandchildren!  I feel lucky to be able to do what I love.
