Patti has been a professional jewelry artist since 2002, when she began to show her work at craft fairs
and a handful of galleries in California. Her interest has always been in the Japanese esthetic, and it
has been her focus to explore those forms in Japanese art and design, adding her own contemporary
spin to them. Her line of jewelry is called "Relics," and her goal has been to make her pieces look like
they come from a time in the past. She uses sterling silver, red brass, copper, and enamel in
her designs. Being able to create with the color that enamel offers is an ongoing exploration for her.
She says that Partners Gallery has been a wonderful partner to represent her work!
