My Bio
I started out as most do, with crayons, cheap paper, and modeling clay. I like to think I've improved over the years, graduating to more expressive (and expensive!) materials.

I have a Bachelors of Art, with a concentration in Metalsmithing. After graduating, I no longer had access to a studio, and turned to beadwork to fill my creative void. I've been beading for years, learning new stitches and techniques, and I still love it.

Periodically, I'll pick up some beads again, but I'm excited to have finally come full circle! I have my own studio set up, and can once again pierce, braze, and set stones in metal! I still love working in copper, but silver is my new favorite.

Oh, sweet silver, saws, and stone settings, how I've missed you!

Introducing a new shop name SILVER SERPENT STUDIO because I'm also introducing new sterling silver jewelry and copper artwork!  I feel this new name better represents me, my shop, and my creations.  (formerly PZ Designs)

I'm excited to report that I am once again working in silver!  I have found a local source of natural stone cabochons as well, and am designing settings as we speak.  I've missed metalwork so much and look forward to sharing my current projects as soon as they are completed!  Yay!
