Framed - From Sea to Garden Collection

During the pandemic, I spent countless hours in my garden caring for and photographing my plants. Using watercolors, I painted many of them, sometimes in miniature.  This inspired me to incorporate these paintings and photographs into my jewelry designs while discovering new ways and other types of metal smithing techniques. On my first trip after the pandemic, I was inspired to create pieces using shells and the beautiful waterscape of Kauai. Inspired by Winslow Homer, I focused on the sea, which has always been an inviting place for me.
