From her first metalsmithing class, Monique loved wielding a torch to turn crude material into a piece of wearable art. She continued to work with metal until she discovered the wonders of precious metal clay. As she relished working with this new material, her work really began to shine. She also added enamel techniques which allowed her to work with bolder colors.
Monique’s Cloisonne and Champleve jewelry designs are made with a combination of metalsmithing and enameling techniques. Her work has been featured in numerous crafting and jewelry publications.
She is a juried member of the Bucks County Guild of Craftsmen and a Master juried member of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen.
