My artist journey into jewelry creation began in grade school where I crafted a beaded pendant for my mother with needle and thread  (a keepsake that still resides in my possession) – this ignited my lifelong artistic pursuit.  I worked in a bead shop for many years while taking hundreds of hours of classes in metalsmithing.  I sold my jewelry in multiple jewelry shows in the south east all the while taking classes from as many instructors as possible, I just couldn’t get enough.  A wonderful turning point arrived with metal clay.   This amazing medium allowed the look of traditional artistry with a more gentle approach that spared my joints.  I became an Art Clay Senior Certified Instructor and began teaching metal clay to share my knowledge gathered from varied jewelry techniques.

I believe that the world of jewelry creations benefits from the diversity of instructors: By embracing the ideas that work for you, we enrich our own creativity journey.

  • Your classes are just amazing and I have learned sooo much from Cindy Pope’s classes on the Silhouette machines. She breaks it down so any beginner can learn. I didn’t take my Curio out of the box for a year until I watched her class. Now I’m addicted
