I am an international instructor and self-taught jewelry designer, wire wrapping since 2005, wire weaving since 2008 and metalsmithing since 2010. I've written extensively for Step By Step Wire Jewelry and Easy Wire magazine and am a contributing author to the books Wire Style and Wire Style 2. I'm the author of Weave, Wrap, Coil Creating Artisan Wire Jewelry. My second wire book, Artisan Filigree Wire-Wrapping Jewelry Techniques and Projects, will be available Summer 2013. My specialty is weaving with wire and metalsmithing and I also use a lot of leather in my designs.
