I am a lifelong resident of Block Island and learned at an early age the importance of repurposing and recycling. Most of my jewelry pieces incorporate something that has had a past life. The glass items are bottles broken and images melted into them. Bracelets are from job site leftovers of stainless steel cable. Much of my inspiration comes from nature. Beach stones that have been perfectly rounded by the sea and drilled and some inlaid with various materials.
