The objects I make are inspired by architecture, by nature as architect, and by my desire to build. I am struck by the process of building, how decisions are made, items are organized, and how a structure grows from an idea. I strive to find a balance aesthetically between the industrial and natural worlds, with a focus on functionality.
My jewelry is hand fabricated, cast, cold-connected, soldered, etched, and die formed. I primarily work with oxidized sterling silver, brass, and 14k gold to create my pieces. Since 2008, I have been using recycled, conflict-free, and SCS certified gold and sterling silver when fabricating my jewelry and sculpture.
