ABOUT THE JEWELRY:
Working with an unexpected combination of materials, I create art jewelry that starts with my own graphic art that I print on thin paper, meticulously laminate to various sizes of small tubing, and embellish with glass, metal and handmade polymer clay beads. Transforming non-precious, sometimes industrial materials into colorful, richly patterned art jewelry is an ongoing exploration.
CARE OF BRACELETS:
Because the outer layer of these unique art bracelets is paper, they need to be worn GENTLY and stored more carefully than most kinds of jewelry. Multiple layers of a polymer coating make them water resistant but prolonged exposure to moisture, oils, or extreme heat will eventually affect the surface. They will last for years if properly taken care of.
Most of the bracelet styles can be made in most of the colors and patterns. Please ask.
Originally trained as a graphic artist, I've been a full-time jewelry artist for over 20 years. In 1988 I made my escape from the city and moved to the woods of southwest Washington state where I live with my husband and share my barn studio with our cat and an elusive squirrel.
