I observe. I synthesize. I (re)create. Nature is my inspiration and every piece of jewelry I handcraft celebrates it in its many guises. Whether using a raw or minimally cut gemstone, capturing the motion of a wave or the feeling of a gentle gust of wind, or carving my own sculptural iterations of flowers, pebbles, and trees, my work personalizes the natural world and makes it wearable and intimate.I hand fabricate all of my jewelry using traditional bench skills (cutting, forming, forging, soldering, hammering, and so on). I love carving wax models because I can create unique shapes that are cast in precious metals and incorporated into to my jewelry designs. All of my pieces are intended to be worn every day and, as such, are comfortable, effortless, and timeless by design.
