My work is about geometric form. I build structures out of beads of glass gemstone and metal. Chains of these structures become necklaces bracelets and more. The mathematical basis of the work provides clarity within complex designs. At the same time by varying the size and shape of the individual elements from long oxidized copper tubes to round gemstones to small seed beads I can create pieces that are free-flowing and spontaneous. My sources of inspiration are many including engineered works like those of Santiago Calatrava as well as natural structures like carbon molecules.
