    From Fashion Design to Jewelry Design

    I was born in Ottawa, Canada and still call it home.

    As a child, I was happiest hanging out with family or spending my time being creative. Sculpting with homemade play-dough, designing and making paper-dolls and their clothes, or quietly drawing on anything I could find, including the side of our newly constructed bungalow (Dad was not happy).

    This creativity was encouraged by my high-school teacher who inspired and pushed the class to try different mediums and to explore beyond our comfort zone. (I wish I knew then what I know now, I would have thanked him).

    After graduating from L’Acadamie Des Couturiers Canadien with a Fashion Design Diploma I set up my first home based business designing and creating Bridal Wear (on a part-time basis). Marriage to my high school sweetheart and children followed. Life got busy. I branched out and started designing Children’s Wear (again, on a part-time basis). However, the demands of family came first. Needing a creative outlet, but on a smaller scale, I took my first Beaded Jewelry class in 1994. That was soon followed by a Wire Jewelry class. I was hooked.

    I have replaced Fashion Design for Jewelry Design. I try to expand my knowledge by taking classes when possible, hoping to apply these newly acquired skills to my designs. I am inspired by the beautiful city of Ottawa and the surrounding country side and the changing seasons of Canada. Most of my designs incorporate copper or silver wire using natural elements such as semi-precious stones, shells, pearls and the occasional found treasure. However, as I grow and learn, I’m open to change.
