ARTIST STATEMENT

My work is created using a wire crochet technique and style of my own. A piece begins with three separate wire lengths to which different variations of gemstones, pearls, crystal, glass or resin have been added. These three beginning wire pieces are hand crocheted down to three necklace-length strands and are braided together. Although each strand is constructed separately and has an "identity" of its own, when combined they interlock to create a harmoniously-colored and texturally-intricate piece of jewelry.
