For my BFA in Crafts, I majored in Ceramics and minored in Fiber. While clay work took me to architectural ornament, needlework became a passionate hobby. Decades later, in the course of pursuing a complex knitting project, I invented and patented a tool, the Finishing Needle, which is now licensed, made, and sold by Susan Bates, the yarn-tool branch of Coats & Clark, Inc.

Recently I've been experimenting with a new technique for making shimmering objects encased in clear jewelers' epoxy resin. More on that as it develops.
