With sterling silver and copper I make one-of-a-kind jewellery and small sculptural pieces. Dogs and cats are a source of inspiration.
Learning the craft of silversmithing has been a challenge and (even with the inevitable frustrations!) a source of great satisfaction and pleasure, not only in the work itself, but also because in the process I have made many new friends, in the WGG and related activities, who have stimulated and encouraged me in my work.
Currently, some items are available at The Waygoose, Rockville, MD., and in The Arts Barn Museum Shop, Gaithersburg, MD.
