I made this pendant and it is super cool! Made it from copper wire, beads with custom hand-made hammered bent medal. The beads spin and move freely on the copper wire. These can be custom made for you or as a gift.

The pendant I made is shown on the model to show how it would look wearing it.

"The Wanderer"

This is a mixed media assemblage I made called "The Wanderer", I used a vintage frame which I decorated and made a collage from sheet music, maps and other ephemera. The wire lady I hand-made and added beads, beach glass and fibers. Her staff is made from a meat nut pick....where has she traveled in her lifetime and what new places will she seek?


I taught a class at the University of Sheboygan,WI on, How to be Creative with collage by making Artist Trading Cards ( ATC'S), which are mini pieces of art the size of a playing card measuring 2 1/2" x 3 1/2". Here is a picture of the students with their completed pieces of art. Great Job Everyone!!!
