Biography

After having spent over 25 years in corporate life, mostly in Information Technology, Nancy was free to develop her creative side.  Looking for the right outlet, Nancy fell upon metalsmithing while exploring other creative arts.  What she experienced was love at first "torch"!  Beginning with sterling silver and moving on to other metals, Nancy has enjoyed having metal be the canvas of her creations.  Nancy has studied at various schools and workshops to improve her craft and continually develop new skills to broaden her ability to design and create unique pieces of wearable art.
