Vicki designs and fabricates with sterling, fine silver, copper, brass, and gold creating jewelry that has a natural look, not the usual shiny or sparkly, but rich and textured, with well thought out form and subtle complexity.

She began her studies in ornamental blacksmithing and eventually silver and goldsmithing which allowed her to create wearable small scale sculptural work.

She regularly teaches metal jewelry classes at Krasl Art Center, St. Joseph, Michigan and Kalamazoo Institute of Art, Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Vicki writes tutorials based on projects and techniques she developed, many have been published in magazines and books.
