One of my favourite pastimes as a child was sorting through my mom’s large tin of buttons.  Over the years that expanded to a love of beads. In my jewellery pieces I have combined antique, vintage, semi-precious stones, trade beads, sterling silver, glass and crystal along with handmade lampwork glass beads and pendants.  Having taken two courses in silver-smithing, I also learned that I feared the torch but enjoyed lost wax casting, and I made quite a few chunky sterling silver rings. In a creative torrent of wires and beads for many years, I made hundreds of pieces.  Now that I am concentrating on painting, I am offering all of my jewellery at half price. Here are some samples. I plan to add more and more over time. And, if you are looking for anything in particular, please let me know. I hold a treasure chest full!!!
