We have been collaborating artists our entire married lives. Our work is always evolving. The experiences we share, or individually participate in, become a part of what we create. Bruce photographs and throws pots and I paint and create jewelry and other objects from precious metals. Bruce's photos are sometimes the inspiration or reference for my paintings and often times I sculpt and carve into his pottery. The results from our combined knowledge and skills becomes something beautiful that we enjoy sharing. Enjoy.

Japanese Flower Chainmaille in Sterling Silver

Original sketches. I decided against the stem and leaf
idea because it was a poor design, as the stem would have
been catching and hooking into clothing...especially sweaters. The design to the right (flower hanging from a
straight wire) was appealing to me and I added a small flower on either side. (photo at right)


Close up of finished set. Earrings below, to match. I added matching beads to the closure hook.

beautiful knots. Thanks for sharing.
