Each Wear Ever Jewelry piece is a unique, handmade item of personal adornment. I use the lasting materials of gold, silver, enamel, and gemstones in carefully crafted designs that you will enjoy wearing for years to come.
Exhilarated by beauty in the natural world, I express my inspirations through a variety of techniques, including enameling and granulation. Enameling is the art of fusing glass to metal through heat. Granulation is the ancient craft of fusing tiny spheres of metal onto a backsheet to create interesting patterns. Virtually all designs are finished in settings of sterling silver, 22k gold, and/or 18k gold, and may be enhanced with natural gemstones.
I received my BFA from University of Tennessee and my MA in Studio Art (jewelry/metals) from New Jersey City University. I exhibit my jewelry in juried craft shows and galleries and teach classes across the United States. My work has been honored in the Saul Bell Design Awards, Niche Awards, MJSA Vision Awards, Halstead Bead Jewelry Design Business Development Grant, and Designer Jewelry Showcase. Also, you may have seen my work published in "Art Jewelry," "Lapidary Journal," and "Inside Jersey" magazines.
