"…masterful in her use of enameling techniques. She creates breathtakingly beautiful Botticelli- like figures who inhabit magical landscapes. Her expert use of the difficult manipulation of enameling to such an intricate end result is a tour de force…you are swept away by their feminine sensitivity, with their interpretation by the most delicate of drawing and coloration…"

In these pieces the subject matter is the female form. Often, by not showing the face the image becomes an abstracted exploration of form and texture. The soft sensual topography offset by jewel like detail. The 18karat gold frames echo the motifs of the enamels. Most pieces are brooches that are also designed to be worn as necklaces with gold handcrafted chains or freshwater pearl necklaces.

A Haiku theme show was the start of this series of pieces. A traditional, Japanese, seventeen- syllable poem, Haiku always alludes to nature and seasons. The enameling medium provides a limitless palette of color, light, texture and line to capture a moment, a mood, a glimpse.

The pieces are set in minimalist 18 and 22 karat frames designed as pins or brooches that can be worn as necklaces.

Occasionally other subjects become intriguing in terms of finding a way to interpret them in enamel and jewelry.

A 4th Century BC gold Stalk of Wheat in the Schimmel Collection in the 1970's inspired this collection of pieces years later. Admiring the work of the greatest designer of all-nature led to studying plants, drawing them, exploring and recognizing the idiosyncrasies of line and form characteristic to each one. After that the pieces almost design themselves. They are handcrafted in18 karat gold with diamonds used occasionally as points of light to offset the soft matte of the metal. Baroque pearls are used as pendants and freshwater pearls as necklaces for the brooches.
