About

“I love creating something with my hands and being able to give my ideas a definite physical shape in precious metal. I find it fascinating how the metal bends and changes with only a few hammer strikes and to witness it take new form”.



                                                     

In my jewelry I combine modern designs with inspiration I find in nature, especially in plant and marine life. Simple organic and geometric shapes are translated into wearable art through the process of hand fabrication. 



I use a variety of traditional jewelers techniques such as fold forming, forging, soldering, fusing, sawing and roller printing. 
Many of my jewelry pieces are finished with a dark patina in order to create an industrial look or a dramatic contrast with gold. 
The materials I use include Silver, Gold, Gold Vermeil and Gold filled as well as pearls and gemstones.



I am a member of the Society of the Northern American Goldsmiths and the Monterey Bay Metal Arts Guild.
