I was living in Istanbul, learning about crocheted lace and as I learned to make jewelry with metals, combining it with lace, I fell in love. The tactile difference of metal and lace is unexpected and makes for art pieces that can be worn and admired. Working with these two materials in tandem is like a dance between opposites, always a beautiful thing. Craft connects us and brings meaning to our lives, something we need now more than ever. My jewelry is a conversation in thread and wire.
