Nokomis - Mother Goddess of The Earth

2012 ArtPrize Entry

All of my art jewelry is handcrafted in Michigan, using my own glass lampworked cabochons, sterling silver, copper & brass. Every piece is one of a kind & stands alone, in its uniqueness, from other studio jewelry designs. The custom & specialty techniques used to create my wearble art has been refined over the years, as I teach myself all the skills that I use, including fold forming, forging & lampworking. Every piece is created from inside my soul. I start out with a blank sheet of metal & a piece of my custom glass & the design creates itself, using my talents. I never know what the finished piece is going to reveal, until it is complete. It comes to me from within, as if the metals & glass & I are one. Each piece holds a deep meaning & a spiritual experience occurs during the birth of each design. Something that will be captured within each piece of my art, forever..
