Virginia, United States
I guess you could say I was born an artist! My intrinsic artistic abilities appeared around the age of 1½ years old when I began scribbling colorful imagery on my bedroom walls, later carving designs and cryptic messages on my parent’s fine furniture. Over the years, I have continued my artistic endeavors working as a monotype printmaker, painter, mixed media artist, and jewelry maker.

Belle Armoire Jewelry Volume 3

I was surfing the net this morning over my coffee. I found a beautiful site http://happydayart.typepad.com/ and had a HUGE surprise! I noticed I share the cover with these other wonderful artists! I am so excited! Thanks to Michelle and Belle Armorie!




Excerpt from the intro for the magazine:



Belle Armoire Jewelry Volume 3 is your source for some of the hottest trends in jewelry, including metal clay, beading, metal stamping, paper collage, resin, and fiber. Deryn Mentock takes ordinary antique flatware and transforms it into perfectly wonderful “Spoonful Pendants” with the addition of vintage chandelier crystals, beads, wirework and ethereal images. Elegance, tradition and history come together in Kristen Robinson’s “At The Ball” resin and silver charm necklaces that evoke the glorious age of the haute ton. Metal clay is not just “For the Birds” as wannabe metalsmith Catherine Witherell shows in designing whimsical birdhouse pendants and jointed bird pendants with Precious Metal Clay. Belle Armoire Jewelry Volume 3 has something for everyone!
