A few years ago another painter friend challenged me to try a different medium at a MECA beginner’s jewelry continuing ed. class. Numerous workshops later, I was hooked, transitioning from painting to metalwork to bring more texture and dimension to my work. I have focused on adornment and jewelry-making, mixing materials that may be trivial or are generally not considered high value with more precious elements to create pieces that tell a story. I am drawn to local (Maine) stones – mining, cutting and setting – to build on the visual language I was developing through painting and assemblage. Natural shapes, colors and textures are set together to resonate with humor or surprise for both wearer and viewer.
