Mom. Tinkerer. Jewelry-maker. Canadian living in SF Bay Area.
I like to work with found objects and natural elements.
Jewelry decorates. In addition to adornment a wearer may choose for personal meaning, to wear as an amulet, a talisman, token, a memory - or simply for how it looks and makes you feel.
I am a hunter, a gatherer - of objects, forgotten trinkets, sticks and stones.
Often components are found at antique markets, vintage stores; and are reused, repurposed, recreated. Leather from tossed garments, scraps in metals, fabric, hardware store nuts and bolts are all sources of inspiration for me.
