I am a metalsmith and an enamelist. I
love making jewelry! My jewelry is bright and bold. If you want to be noticed for your unique, one-of-a-kind jewelry,
you are really going to enjoy this site.
I have always been interested in making art. Since graduating from college I have studied and worked with china
painting, ceramics, water colors, acrylics and oil. From the early 1970's through the 1980's, I painted folk art, taught
acrylics at the junior college level, and did juried art shows. Then, I took a jewelry class. I was
hooked! My love of jewelry goes back a long way.
Can you inherit it? My grandmother loved big and glitzy. My husband calls me a raven
because I am drawn to anything shiny and glitzy. I started collecting Swarovski pins. Later, I moved on to vintage
jewelry. I loved restoring vintage pieces. Soon, this collection became so big, that I
decided to start my own business and named it Array of Elegance. I began to sell my vintage
jewelry in antique stores. Today, I still add vintage to my new pieces.
jewelry education is rooted in both classes and books. I have a passion for learning new techniques
and ideas for my jewelry. For me, working with metal and stone has filled a need to create and see
beauty not filled in the other medias.
My works of art are fabricated by hand and are one-of-a-kind.
My hope is that you will enjoy wearing your unique piece of jewelry as much as I enjoyed creating it.
