|It was an odd beginning. An impulsive romp through a bead store 17 years ago introduced me to the world of jewelry making. Beading seemed like a fun, inexpensive (ha) way to spend time outside my work as a psychotherapist. This pursuit, along with creating wire jewelry, laid the foundation for my adventures in metal fabrication.
Even in the early days I was fascinated with design. Having had no formal art training, this area of jewelry making was particularly frustrating. Fortunately I was undeterred, and my frustration served only to fuel my interest to learn.
After studying fabrication and design, I eventually started teaching. Nothing compares to a happy student who has just learned a new technique. And because I have seen students struggle with my old nemesis, design, I plunged into unknown waters by writing an eBook on the topic. I expect it to be published the summer of 2014.
