Ojai Studio Artists tour weekend!
We…just got back from D.C. and we went to…the Phillips Museum. And low and behold, in their gift shop was some of your mesh jewelry. Of course there are a couple of necklaces that I bought my daughters and…my own necklace with the seed pods…that I always get compliments on. …it makes me very happy that other people will see your beautiful work.

“This artist’s manipulation of chain mail mesh, a material associated with protection and defense, into stylish pieces of wearable art is marvelous. The soft bends and folds of the forms add an unexpected subtlety of design to the works. The accenting details and clean designs combine to give each piece an overall elegance.”
Milwaukee Lakefront Festival of the Arts Award, 2008
Take It Off
I bought your necklace at the Baltimore Craft Show. The only problem is, people keep asking me to take it off so they can feel it. If you receive requests from the Philadelphia area, they probably come from me — because I wear the necklace a LOT.
“Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life.”
Elaine—thanks a million. Wore vest to St. Patty’s day party…..rave reviews. Loving it.
I adore my necklace, and find myself putting it on any chance I get. Please consider me one of your newest avid fans.
