My wearables and wire jewelry are constructed using a variety of both on and off the loom techniques. They are made of natural, at times man-made fibers, and their final form is born of fantasy or inspiration from literature, research, and life experience. Beads, buttons, and other notions add whimsy to the pieces.
In producing one of a kind or limited edition items I feel I can retain honesty, spontaneity, and a sense of humor.
In my accessories and clothing, I explore fabric structures, many pieces are reversible or capable of being worn in different orientations, all shaping and surface texture is achieved as the piece is manufactured.
The jewelry offers an opportunity to explore wire sculptural forms in small scale, copper wire (sometimes color coated) is my material of choice.
I like to solve different kinds of problems in my work, am involved with the techniques, attracted to the geometrics of knitting, crotchet, surface embellishment, and the complexities of the resulting structures and design.
