Artist Statement

My goal is to create a wearable piece of jewelry with a timeless beauty and elegance.

All my pieces are hand-fabricated out of sterling or fine silver, using traditional metalsmithing techniques. I am very much drawn to the intricate patterns, geometry, and texture of chainmaille. Using ancient and new weaves, I can create either a very bold statement piece or something extremely feminine and delicate.

I usually begin with a specific idea in mind, but often, when playing around with the raw material, a new design just happens.

I absolutely love what I do. It is very satisfying to create a functional piece of beauty that can bring pleasure to someone else.
