"I create antiquity inspired contemporary jewelry using classical metalsmithing techniques of fabrication and casting in sterling silver and high karat gold, with luscious stones and gems. Textures are a highlight of my work, inspired by the rough and natural designs in nature and unearthed treasures from long ago. I play with mixed metals and patinas to build unique colors, reminiscent of sunlight, shadows, erosion, and oxidation. Often my pieces are delicate in design and simple in final presentation. I enjoy clean lines and deliberate details without unnecessary distractions. Each item is created with structural strength, but with feminine movement.
My metal work represents my love of nature and organic designs, including the individual human figure. I design with beauty of the wearer in mind, items that complement and highlight curves and lines of a woman’s neck, chest, wrist, and hand."
