I began my jewelry career in 1974 after an appreticeship with Master Goldsmith, Homer Holland. After years of working for a local jewelry store, I opened my own wholesale trade shop in 1982. I earned my Graduate Gemologist Certificate from G.I.A. in 1984. In 1998 I became a J.A. Certified Master Bench Jeweler.
While I still own and operate my trade shop in Salt Lake City, my drive for creating distinctive pieces and inspiring others has provided me with the opportunity to share my knowledge of jewelry making at schools as well as demonstrations across the country.
