I have always had the desire to create beautiful, wearable art. As my skills progressed from braided friendship bracelets, to assembling jewelry using wire, chain and pre-fab components, I eventually landed on my true passion:  working with metal. I love the feeling that with the right tools and inspiration, you can take a simple piece of silver and create virtually limitless designs branching in infinite directions. I create my jewelry designs by sawing, filing, forging, soldering, melting and casting silver, brass and gold. Attention to detail and process are crucial to the successful execution of a piece of quality jewelry and I truly enjoy the challenge of figuring out the best method to construct a new, complicated piece by drawing on the knowledge I have gained from working on past designs. My work is constantly evolving as I continue to explore, learn and master new skills.
