Hand painted natural shell pendants and earrings inspired by nature and all its forms
Nature is an enduring source of inspiration for my hand-painted jewelry designs. Using mother-of-pearl shell as a medium allows this unique form of nature to enhance and enliven my flowers, landscapes, ocean scenes, and more. After 20 years of creating my one-of-a-kind pendants and earrings, I carried my designs over to oil on canvas. Painting on a blank field of white was daunting at first, but over time, the rich vibrancy I found in oil painting allowed me to expand my work as an artist and to convey an even deeper appreciation of nature and all the light and color it provides.
