Through a variety of classes over the years, Jimmi has refined her creative process using a torch to work with silver and fold forming copper as well as etching, to create interest in her designs that incorporate a variety of stones. “I love the process of finding a stone that speaks to me and I enjoy creating a design that compliments the stone. I want each of my unique pieces to have a story.”


Making jewelry is her creative outlet. “When I’m in the studio I lose all track of time. I’m not worrying about what I need to do next. It just flows.”  


Jimmi has been a member of Tryon Arts and Crafts for eight years. “With each new class or workshop, I have expanded my knowledge of creating metal art. I am thankful for this wonderful local resource that feeds my soul and helps me be a better artist.”


Philosophically Jimmi shares: “One’s path in life is never linear. The reflection of eternity emerges in my jewelry through circular patterns.”
