My metalsmith path was created by a life long passion for jewelry and a need to find something of my own. I am self taught and began experimenting with various metalsmith techniques in 2009. In December 2011 I opened my first online shop to sell my jewelry designs. I lived in Italy for many years, and then in 2013 I moved to Massachusetts to be near my family. I set up my studio here on Cape Cod, participate in various local art shows, and I am part of the Woodshole Handworks Co-Op Seasonal Gallery.
