I am a maker of ceramic art beads and handcrafted jewelry. My designs are simple and earthy, like the humble clay from which each piece begins. Beads are made one at a time, with two hands, and a lot of heart, in my sunny yellow home-studio in Wisconsin.

Inspiration is collected on travels- to far-off lands and in my own backyard. My designs reflect me, the places I've gone, and the cherished bits I've collected along the way. I strive to live simply and walk lightly upon this earth.
