Mint Springs Designs, Chincoteague, VA
I am a retired high end kitchen and bath designer of 40 years. I accidently stumbled on the technique of wire work and fell in love. As a child my Father taught me how to work with copper and this seemed like an extension of my childhood. Dale “Cougar” Armstrong was my primary instructor and mentor. I work in sterling silver and gold filled wire and precious and semi-precious stones, natural cabochons and found objects such as arrowheads, pottery shards, etc.. My finished jewelry pieces include necklaces, pendants, rings, bracelets, earrings and pins.
