Jewelry inspired by the journey.

My jewelry is now on  display along with my paintings and prints, at the Art Study in University Village, Seattle.

FlatTire Jewelry began as a gift. Creating jewelry for friends to celebrate our joy-filled adventures on bikes was the beginning. Then I was asked to teach a workshop at the Seattle Art Museum about using recycled bicycle parts to make Art. The response that I got from that workshop inspired me to take the collection a step further into and closer to my painting and printmaking practice.  I have named the second collection, “From the Forest to the Sea” because like my larger works, it is inspired by moving through the landscape and gratitude for each step, glide, stroke, and spin along the way.
