Born from my lifelong concern for the Earth and its resources, I share my vision of the healing power of copper and semi-precious stones in art jewelry for you.

Creating lovely set for Blue Suede auction
The Exchange Club/Carl Perkins Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse has always been close to my heart because they help so many children and families. So I'm working on this set for the upcoming Blue Suede dinner and auction that features Diamond Rio for entertainment. The set of earrings and pendant will include amethyst for spiritual courage, fluorite for genius and creativity, peridot for spring, a bit of shell for sailing through life, and a gem of labradorite to see through illusions. I'm calling it Pretty Woman. It will be worn on silk designer ribbon, so soft against the skin.
Since I created RCF in 2004, my jewelry designs have been featured in Art World News and on PBS TV "Tennessee Crossroads." I will be the featured artist at the Feminine Mystique Art Gallery in Tubac, AZ. in April 2013. My jewelry is shown in the Arizona Collector's Guide and has been chosen for many juried shows.
Auctioned at The Jackson Symphony's Crystal Ball: Necklace, pendant, earrings, bracelet of black-gold amazonite and the luster of labradorite with the power of copper and silver
Life's been a winding road -- isn't it always?
Welcome to my blog, where you'll travel winding roads of fantasy in art jewelry and in life. When I began this journey, I knew there'd be paths diverging in the woods and I'd wonder which one the Fates were marking for my footsteps. But there's always that grand adventure. I'll share a secret -- though I studied art, what I'm creating with my art jewelry is a gift. One morning I awakened from a dream with the concepts as clear as day. When I pick up the stones and wire and begin to work, what happens is something that cannot be explained. It just becomes. And then I know when it's complete. So come travel with me and I'll share the journey.
