Rain learned at an early age that she could sketch with some accuracy. In grade school, her work was made part of the school’s time capsule, publications and hallway murals.

Beyond her school years, an interest in jewelry design and fabrication took wings with the advent of the right people

and opportunities entering her life.  She took silversmithing classes at a community centre in Tampa, Florida where she was a resident for 10 years and added workshops in glass bead making and fused glass.  Aside from these, Rain is mostly self taught, gaining techniques from books and internet sites.

 

Although skilled as a coloured pencil artist, Rain finds jewelry has become her ideal medium. Allowing design

to flow from her materials, such as stones with interesting visual or textural patterns, Rain hopes to create unique pieces to become future heirlooms.

 

Rain immigrated to Canada in 2001, where she learned

wax carving for casting from a local goldsmith. Her recent work in filigree and casting have sparked new creative routes.
