ARTIST STATEMENT

Recently my involvement with beaded knitting segued into other kinds of beadwork. Not satisfied with commercially available findings, I learned to make simple clasps. Soon I was following my bliss in the direction of maille for jewelry, sometimes called “metal lace.” And back to beads, but this time on the jump rings. It seemed a natural progression for me to then incorporate a little hardware into the mix. I’m fond of hardware.
