My work is inspired by the graceful quality of nature, paying close attention to the patterns and structures it contains. These aspects combined with clean lines, texture and mixed metals framed in modern simplicity create intricate yet subtle designs. All pieces are entirely by hand, from first sketch through final craftsmanship.
I use traditional metalsmithing techniques including piercing (sawing) all cutouts by hand, forming, forging, hard soldering, textural hammering, and riveting. Various metals are combined in order to enhance organic qualities and natural appearance. In a sense my jewelry is meant to ground and connect the wearer to nature and the environment.
