It’s Cool to go to School

Since I have a degree in art (BFA with a concentration in Metalsmithing) and am making art and jewelry for my living, Northern Arizona University asked if they could write a profile about me for their “Difference that Matters” page. They were interested in how I decided to go to NAU and about the Whiteman Scholarship that I received. I was honored and excited, so of course, I said, “yes!”

Anticlastic Copper Bracelet

Stunning bracelet opens to reveal highly polished deep reds against the warmth and vibrancy of brushed copper.

Like the gorgeous red rocks of the mountains in this region of the southwest, or of the deep red sunsets reflected on limestone and sand, this bracelet reflects the environment in which it was made.
