I love creating jewelry, working with different metals, mostly sterling silver and copper, and gemstones of all kinds (though I favor rough cut stones, those as close to their natural state as possible). I strive to highlight and respect the simplicity and integrity of these materials.

I am inspired by the natural beauty of imperfection, color and shapes and often feel that less, is more when designing.

My relaxed sensibilities carry through to my design’s everyday wearability and style. I make pieces that I want to wear and have a timelessness in their style, not riding the wave of current trends.

Entirely self taught, I continue to learn everything I know through trial and lots of error. My ever evolving designs keep me challenged and designs unique and mostly one-of-a-kind.
