I'm a native Tucsonan (but it's a dry heat).
I'm married to Tom, he retired a year ago
and has joined me at the studio.
I have two amazing daughters. Brianna is 29,
she graduated Aveda Beauty College and
works for Potter USA.  Brittany is 26, she's a
Blackhawk Flight Paramedic in the
United States Army.

I've been making jewelry since high school and
became a silversmith at the age of 21. I've shown
my jewelry at craft fairs in Colorado, California
and Arizona.
I was a stay at home mom, so that gave me time to
develop my jewelry making skills. I work with a lot
of different metals and different jewelry techniques.
I've been teaching metalsmithing, chainmaille and
many other jewelry making techniques for 19 years.

I demoed the Jump Ringer, jump ring cutting system
for the late Ray Grossman at Rio Grande Catalog in Motion
during the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show for 15 years.
I also taught Chainmaille workshops for Rio Grande
during the Gem Show.

I started working for Kevin Potter at Potter USA
April 2014.  What a great job, I really loved it! 
Kevin let me draw and design several pancake die
shapes which are up on his website.
I went crazy drawing the designs, which some are
still in the line up to be made (I can't wait)!  
I also designed a bracelet bender when I was 21 years
old which my friend made for me out of a piece of pipe
and a wooden block.  I showed Kevin and suggested
that he make them. He loved the idea and makes them
out of aluminum. They're an amazing bracelet bender!

Well, my job ended at Potter USA February of 2015.
Believe me, it was a very sad day!  But when God
closes one door, he opens another.
Now I am the proud owner and creator of
Get Hammered Metalsmith Studio LLC where
I teach metalsmithing, silversmithing, etching,
torch enameling, delft clay casting, chainmaille
and much more.
