I have always been fascinated by the transformative relationship that exists between fire and metal, and the possibilities that unfold when they are brought together. I love the beauty that is created out of a process that can be messy, challenging, and at times a little dangerous. It is this blend of transformation and contrast that informs my approach to creating jewelry.
I find inspiration in the mundane details I see in the world around me: a crack in the sidewalk, the way a particular branch springs forth from a tree, the unintended patterns created by erosion on a surface. I like to mix organic and architectural elements, smooth and deeply textured surfaces, light and dark finishes. I work primarily with silver and incorporate pearls and semi precious stones to add contrast and an element of unpredictability.
