Small Joys Studio, LLC
I design and create one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces in metal, enamels, beads, and gemstones. Having worked as a research scientist for more than 25 years, I was always inspired by nature. My work is a joyful reflection of the forms and colors found in the world around us.
My favorite techniques are wax carving, lost wax silver casting, PMC and a combination of hot and cold connections for the â€œRadiolariaâ€, the microscopic life inspired series. The body of work from the â€œGardenâ€ series, inspired by bright birds and flowers, is predominantly made with enameling on metal shapes, hand cut, altered and formed. Many pieces throughout the series share the features designed with cold connected natural faceted beads.
