O n w a t e r . . ."Growing up by the Rappahannock River where it flows into the Chesapeake Bay, water had a huge impact on my life. Today, I relate life's fluidity to that of water. My work embodies a spirit of that smooth flow that I relish. I design and create all of my jewelry in my studio in Charlottesville, Virginia."
