I believe in story. I speak metal. I combine the two to honor the stories of my clients and collectors.
Jewelry is an intimate art form because of its place on the body and because it can be passed on, story attached. As such it has the power to function as a tool to enrich our relationships and honor our lives.
I create jewelry, vessels, and miniature sculptures with a narrative quality. My methods include forging, soldering, etching, handbuilt stonesetting, enameling, fabricating, and more. My media include metals, gemstones, enamel, found materials, and more.
I am a full-time maker.
