This website still has not yet been "officially launched"...

  • Home Parties: Jewelry & Adornments just for you and your friends. Contact me about hosting a private party!
  • Learn
    • A schedule of upcoming workshops I will be teaching;
      (I should probably change that link because the page it goes to sorely needs to be updated!
      Please contact me directly, or browse my blog, for more recent information....);
    • A list of potential classes I am prepared to offer at your request
      (I should probably just remove that link, as it's even more outdated:
      again, please check the blog or contact me direcely), and
    • A description of topics I can offer at your site:
      • as private instruction, or
      • as another kind of fun home party for a small group that you organize.
  • View Samples of My Wares
    • Until I've arranged for a collection of favorites & explorations here,
      please feel free to browse my online photo galleries at:
      • Picasa,
        except, the absolutely wonderful Picasa is no more,
        but you can still find many small images from there on my blog, or
      • Flickr I,
        except, though you CAN still see a few older images there,
        for some reason, I can no longer get into that to update it, so
      • Flickr II
        which is where I've been putting photos until I can find a better site
        (they do display well on Flickr, but I find its user-interface
        far too awkaward for regular use, by me or by you...).
      • Sigh...

  • And, do check out my blog is where I write (for my students and fellow artists) about working with metal clay (and more).

    I've been busy making adornments, not playing on the 'net.
    What's here now are (still) just preliminary notes and quick snapshots.

    If you've known about this site for a while, you will know that I have
    regular fantasies about really spending some time fixing it up. You are
    welcome to let me know if you'd like to be notified when this site is
    officially launched. In the (likely loooong) meantime, please do check
    my blog which I do try to update every week or two.
