“Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working” ~ Picasso
Working with metals and precious gemstones allows me to create one-of-a-kind pieces that lets the wearer say who they are without having to speak. Each piece is hand-worked and designed for the individual wearer. So it is, jewelry is intimate by nature and takes on the persona of the wearer. It defines who you are, where you have been and holds a place for future generations.
Coalescing the forces of alchemy — The Alloying of Noble Metals, Ancient Granulation, Gem Carving, Japanese High-Relief Chasing, and Repousse´ — create an evolution for each piece to take on a life of its own.
Jewelry can reveal past histories and stories evoking sentiment, superstition, protection, healing and culture. Crafting art into a piece of jewelry is to draw on reflections from the past, merge them with the present, and offer a portal into the future.
