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.

Art in the Village open at Casey Jones
I wanted to let my local customers know that if they haven't been to Art in the Village at Casey Jones Village, they should stop by to check it out! This new artists' co-operative had its grand opening a week ago and features about 25 artists in fine arts, pottery, jewelry, photography and more. At right you'll see one of my bracelets of amethyst and fluorite. The gallery's holiday hours are Wednesday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. On my first Saturday at the gallery, I spoke with people from Russia, France and Canada, as well as several states. Then we also had new artists stopping by to ask how they can join, so there's a lot going on and we hope you'll check us out! Take the big kids and little kids to the train museum as well -- it's so amazing!
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.
