Art is in my blood. My dad was a graphic designer early in his life, my mother loves design whether in clothing or in homes, my sister is an all around creative and my mother-in-law was an accomplished jeweler. After inheriting her jewelry studio, I attended a two-month metalsmithing intensive at Penland School of Crafts (North Carolina) where I learned to make engaging jewelry designs using centuries-old methods. After living in Jackson Hole for six years, I now reside in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina where I am the owner and designer of Worthy Circle Jewelry & Accessories (www.worthycircle.com). I create designs in recycled sterling silver, bronze and 14k gold that are staples from season to season. I love teaching beginning jewelry classes, my dogs, and a really good laugh!
