Contrast, shapes and textures have always inspired me. Wilderness exploring led to rock hounding, collecting found treasures from nature and fashioning various works of art with them. Family members instilling creative expression was a valuable life force, along with College studies that included Graphic Drawing, Photography and Ceramics. As a young adult, near 14 years was spent practicing with a local Silversmith. This combined legacy was an enormous influence and echoes who I am today as my creative journey continues.
Life is not about finding yourself, it's about creating yourself !
Currently, I enjoy a noisy life with a collection of hammers, achieving exciting contrast and dimension by applying creative textures, stamps, overlays and pierce work to various metals including sterling and fine silver, gold, copper and brass. Natural “rough” form to highly polished cabachons and faceted gemstones are often embraced in bezel style settings. The fabricated geometric shapes and forms with sleek lines and edgy curves are combined with traditional techniques and quality hand work of fine jewelry making that is instilled into each of my original creations. Experience my newest selections or help custom design your own unique, one of a kind piece of heirloom, artist crafted jewelry. American made!
