Sea Glass Meets Wire Weaving

Most of my life I’ve expressed my creativity through music as a classical violinist and currently as a rock-n-roll player with my band.

Over the years my artistic impulses carried me in many directions besides music to include repurposing furniture, macrame, dancing, decorating, garden design, etc…

The inspiration for my SeaWeaves creations began during many walks with my dogs on the beaches of New England, collecting sea glass. Another inspiration was a collection of vintage jewelry I inherited from my grandmother.

I’d seen wire wrapping, but I felt that was already being done by many artisans, and I needed to go beyond wrapping for a more personal expression. I found it in wire weaving.

Wire weaving is a way for me to combine sea glass, vintage jewelry and creative expression.

My approach to design is spontaneous; not planned, no templates, drawings, or jigs. No drills, no solder, no glue. I create my own chains, bails, chokers, clasps, and settings. I wanted to keep it organic as possible like the materials I use, simultaneously simple yet complex. As I’m creating, each design changes from moment to moment.

I hope my art evokes memories of times at the beach, with loved ones, and the simple yet complex beauty of the ocean.
