I thrive in the landscape of the unknown, the uncharted possibilities of pure invention.
My jewelry designs are thought experiments that are based on the mutable nature of precious metals as materials. Envisioning metal as fabric frees me to impart movement and fluidity that enlists my practical skills as an experienced metalsmith and my expansive imagination.
The work that I create today, bonds the ancient craft of chainmaille to a contemporary jewelry aesthetic. The result is striking compositions that float and move on the body sensuously. Softness, transparency, and suppleness are qualities that guide my intention. This work is demanding and completely absorbing, requiring equal parts engineering and creativity to transform a rigid material into a supple form.
