My jewelry is influenced by an academic background in wildlife biology, and the inspirations found in our world’s flora and fauna. I have been studying nature, sculpting, writing poetry, and painting my whole life. I have a MS in Wildlife Biology, and taught art and science for many years at the Teton Science School in Grand Teton National Park. Ten years ago, after my son was born, I began sculpting jewelry full time, and I love designing in my log cabin workshop. I inscribe special messages for the wearer on the reverse of each piece, and I sculpt with attention to both the symbol and message of the design. The gemstones and silver are recycled, and I use bronze instead of gold, so my creations are truly eco-friendly. I feel the symbolism of totems, stone meanings, and inspirations combine to create powerful designs that are beautiful to wear. Each piece is unique; these are truly wearable sculptures.
