I've been making wire jewelry for over 10 years. I started as a way to keep my hands busy, but fell in love with the craft and the art. I especially love copper wire, its different moods and effects, its earthy elegance. I'm also in love with Victorian design, and with the symbols found in folklore and mythology. They all have a way of finding their way into my designs, sometimes in unexpected places.Aside from jewelry, I have a great deal of experience in education and tutoring; this helps me break down complex patterns and techniques into clear, understandable steps that anyone can follow.
