I have been creating unique metal jewelry for 13 years. I love using old hardware and found objects in my pieces along with my own original metalwork. My interest in photography began when I started taking pictures of my handmade metal and wire jewelry several years ago. Soon I began photographing nature, architecture and ordinary objects, making them appear extraordinary. In addition to framed prints, I am adding my images to my jewelry through etching and transfer techniques. I also alter antique bottles with photos, stamps, beads, fibers and paints. Many, many other ideas are floating around this head of mine...stay tuned!
