About

I wanted to wear jewelry that no one else had. To do so, I started making it myself. And the rest, so it goes, is history.

It all started in my basement studio in Northern New Jersey in 2007, after a visit to the store "Beads on Fifth" in Manhattan where I purchased several spools of copper wire. Being an avid "Do-It-Yourself-er", it was only natural that I would take my alteration mania beyond clothing into jewelry.
 

 

Soon my painting & collage work space was overrun by wire clippings, and fantastic forms of wire in varying stages of becoming "wearable". I was hooked.

I instantly fell in love with the medium, and the love has grown exponentially since that time. 

Everything I make, I absolutely love- and if I don't love it—it is not finished.
