I create sculptural jewelry that is balanced, bold and luminous using traditional fabrication and forming techniques. I combine mixed precious metals, minerals and gems with an emphasis on metal form and function. Designing happens at the bench and is largely fueled by instinct, intuition and play. My inspiration is drawn from a combination of forces; natural geometry, modern sculpture, and iconic patterns and design from both contemporary and ancient art. I particularly enjoy exploring the play between positive and negative, shadow and light and masculine and feminine.
