Contemporary classic jewelry thats eclectic eccentric & exquisite. Many things inspire me nature different cultures and forms of art. Etching original designs adds interest and texture. Fascinated with shape and form using centuries-old metalsmithing techniques forging and forming with flame and hammers hard flat sheets or wire of precious and base metals are transformed into lovely flowing shapes. Contrasting highly polished with textured matte finishes captures changes in light and depth and creates a sense of movement. Gemstones pearls and crystals are set or wirewrapped adding the beauty of more color to the pallete. Working at my jewelers bench has brought me both joy and peace; it is my hope the wearer of my art feels this and treasurers the experience.
