precious metal jewelry
I design and create fine jewelry at my country home just outside of Barneveld, WI. I have lived in Wisconsin for most of my life and have a love for nature and the natural world. My love of creating jewelry began in high school back in the 70s. From there I continued on the journey and purchased all the tools and equipment needed to set up a full service jewelry studio. My jewelry was on display at my parents' supper club and my client base began to grow as I created personal custom pieces and repaired customers' broken jewelry.
My creations are inspired by my love for our planet. Whenever possible I like to repurpose material into new designs. Repurposing clients old jewelry that is just sitting in a box is when I really feel like I'm in my element. To take the time to help them design a piece that suits who they are now is very gratifying for me and the client too. Currently my work is on display at Bergey Jewelry in Mount Horeb.
