In the 15 or so years that I’ve been making jewelry, my work has evolved through different materials and styles. My latest adventure is in discovering the wonders of copper! I love the endless possibilities it offers and the versatility of its forms. Sometimes I start a piece with a specific design in mind, but the piece of copper chooses to take me in another direction. I am mostly influenced by color and texture, and I use a variety of stones and embellishments to accent the beauty of the metal. Sometimes I like to focus the attention on beautiful semi-precious stones and forgo the copper or keep the metal minimal, just using a small piece for enhancement. My styles can range from modern to vintage to steampunk to absolutely weird and wild depending on my mood. I always hope that someone who purchases my work smiles every time they choose to wear it.
