Marti was always interested in the arts. Some of her fondest memories included art camp, painting in her basement, art classes in summer school, and involvement in choral music as a child. Marti became a professional artist and craftsman after completing her BFA in jewelry making. She has been designing jewelry for over 42 years. As much as she loves creating jewelry, she also greatly enjoys teaching. Marti has taught nationally and internationally.
Marti, the dragon behind The Dragon’s Odyssey LLC, works in a variety of traditional and contemporary jewelry metals and processes. Currently she works in niobium, a colorful metal, embellished frequently with beads. A trip to Tucson for the gem shows reintroduced her to the joys of playing with beads. Marti is constantly looking for new sources of inspiration and has added beadweaving, Viking knit, polymer clay, felting and chainmaille to her techniques.
Marti is a founding member of the Delaware Valley Bead Society encompassing Hunterdon County in New Jersey and Bucks County in Pennsylvania.
