My interest in creating jewelry was inspired by my Mom, Norma, who after showing me the basics, had me hooked. I've always enjoyed anything that had to do with the arts and admire painters, silversmiths, sculptors, dancers, musicians, and those talented individuals who bring their vision to life.
The pieces I create are handmade using 49-strand wire, silver (Hill Tribe, Thai, Balinese, Isreali, Turkish, sterling, and Argentium Sterling Silver*), and beautiful stones and beads, including one-of-a-kind artisan pieces. I'm very drawn to rich earth tones, bold accents, and I love the summery shades of the ocean. To say the least, the possibilities are endless.
This website is a collection of stylish bags and beautiful jewelry from artists, silversmiths, and of course Element Cottage pieces.
I hope you enjoy!
*Argentium Silver is a revolutionary silver that is virtually tarnish free.
