I've been turning anything I can find into jewelry since I was about 11.  I found some fuses that I thought would make cool earrings and have been busy scrounging through surplus stores ever since.  I still have a soft spot for fuses and hardware but have since expanded into freeform beadwork.

 

My most recent beadwork also reflects my interest in astronomy.  Constellations and other astronomical phenomenon are subtly represented with careful placement of specifcally chosen beads and hardware. 

 

I currently live in York, PA and work full time as an industrial designer at Graham Packaging Company.
