She resaws all of her wood on an 18" band saw,some of it to .010". soaks it in containers of hot dye, uses Epoxy to glue everything, cut all the angles with a 12"dia. SMS, Turns them on the Jet Lathe,or on the SouthBend metal cutting lathe, and finishes them all with Epoxy.

Her jewelry is not cheap the bracelets run from $450.-$750. each, the colors are bright and magnificent.

She teaches class of 10 students at a time, for $1000/student.

 

@Gene Howe She uses the red blade on the SMS.

She don't know whut she's amissin'. But, at 10 grand a class and $450-$750 per bauble, she can afford to waste a little wood.

She laminates up blocks of strips of the resawn wood and then reaws them into strips of varying sizes and widths, glues them together,then chops them up at angles then reglues them into strips and rips them again and chops them up and reglues them and resaws them ,then glues them into blocks that she turns on the lathe.

The key to the whole thing is visualizing what the final pattern is going to be before she stops chopping reglueing and resawing, and that is only in HER head.

If you read her Bio you will see the varied training and hands-on education she has had through the years. She is a journeyman carpenter,/cabinet maker/violin-maker/architectural designer,etc.
