Making jewelry is a meditation to me. When I sit at my workbench, gemstones, shells, beach stones become my palette. I’m so plugged into nature, living here in Maui 32 years, off the grid, surrounded by abundance and beauty, rich colors, sunset skies with dancing hues beyond imagination, frothy beach wave diving with my daughter for shells - precious jewels to be set in gold - sleeping sounds of gecko’s, waking to mina’s dancing on the metal roof. I walk from house to studio - solar power, catchment water - passing rain squalls, the many greens of the jungle. I’m plugged in. My gift is the skill of my hands, and from my parents, exposure to Art Nouveau and turn of the century craftsmanship. The Mana of this land flows through me and inspires my collections of work: Bamboo motif, Mermaids - Ocean Treasures, Po’haku ( beach stone ) , and Maui Nouveau. Hammer, file, flame and saw.
