About Creator

My path as a metalsmith and jewelry designer has been a lifelong pursuit. Starting in my early teens I became captivated by both historical and contemporary works in metal. The detail, precision and focus are both challenging and rewarding. In my work I draw inspiration from ancient alphanumeric systems, contemporary architecture, and my own personal cultural history. I am intrigued with balance and proportion, and feel as if each piece must find

its axis on the wearer. The work is designed to be elegant, with minimal and bold forms.

My work is an exploration of form and materials, each equally important. I feel firmly rooted in the historical tradition of my craft.

I am committed to the use of materials for their color texture and versatility. Often the material is the inspiration for the piece of jewelry being designed. Coconut shell, dyed and carved, is used to achieve rich color and texture. Forging, fabricating and casting are used to create pieces with dimension and volume.
