I grow and press my own flowers using a technique that allows the natural color in the flower to concentrate as it dries, resulting in vivid colors that last.
I create a focal piece by arranging flowers between two pieces of glass and sealing the edges with solder.
Art glass, copper wire and sheet copper are cut and shaped to create the other design elements in my jewelry. I use both a torch and a soldering iron to join the design elements and create decorative textures and finishes.
