Bio

I received a BS degree in Economics and Philosophy from the University of Wisconsin. Five years later, I had a boyfriend who wanted a silver ring with a Yin-Yang symbol on it. I took a course in jewelry making to make it for him. Now 30 years later, I have a Master degree in Jewelry and Metalsmithing. I worked 10 years as a jeweler in the industry putting myself thru Grad school and supplementing my income while I started teaching. I have taught at the University level since 1977. I run the jewelry program at Loyola Marymount University and in 1997 the Mechanical Engineering and Jewelry program received a grant from the National Science Foundation for one of the first CAM (computer aided manufacturing) machines. Since the field was brand new we had to teach ourselves. In 2009 I started  also teaching at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles in the new professional jewelry program. I teach metalworking, wax working, cad/cam design and design workshops.

My jewelry has been exhibited all over the USA and in Japan. I have had articles written about my work from here to Japan and the Netherlands. I also have written articles about the new CAD/CAM technology both for jewelry and mechanical engineering publications.
