Gemstones are an intriguing material to work with. Their beauty and individual characteristics are the focus that leads my designs. Because of this, I am able to offer my customers pieces of jewelry featuring gemstones that are one-of-a-kind.

I design and create artisan sterling silver jewelry using traditional building methods of forging and fabrication. I use simple tools: saws, files, hammers, a torch and a variety of finishing mediums to construct each piece. Craftsmanship is key. I take great care to insure the quality that creates timeless heirloom jewelry. My design aesthetic has an elegant simplicity with geometric lines and fine finishes. I take inspiration from Art Nouveau/Art Deco Era design and add contemporary style.

My customers love that my jewelry is both artistic and wearable for every day. I truly love the creative process and sharing my passion and work with others.

I am a self-taught jewelry designer who works primarily in fine silver. I love the freedom to be creative in my art and the sparkle that comes from polishing my jewelry pieces. My customers feel the love I put into every piece in my collection, how it is comfortable to wear and how easily it fits into their lifestyle.

I combine textiles, metal and glass into statement pieces that make my customers the center of attention. Using a medieval finger weaving technique, I weave fabric from thin gauge wire. I embed that woven metal fabric behind layers of clear glass that magnify and distort the underlying weave. The woven wire combined with the glass creates pieces that have amazing sparkle and instantly attracts notice.

My customers also love the way I’ve engineered clasping systems that allow people to easily and securely put on my bracelets and necklaces by themselves. My philosophy is that jewelry should make you pretty, not pretty mad!
