Jewelry

Working mostly in silver, gold, and gemstones, I offer one-of-a-kind jewelry, as well as some items which I make in multiples.

The majority of my work is made by fabrication, which means the metal is directly worked by tools and by hand.

Many of my pieces include handmade Roman chain. I often use gold embellishment on silver.

Artistically, my goal is to combine ancient techniques with my contemporary concepts, into an elegant piece with a look of timeless beauty. Often an unusual gemstone is the inspiration for the composition. Occasionally, my work will reflect a bit of humor or whimsy.

Creating objects in metal brings me great a joy, which I hope is apparent to the viewer, and contagious to the ultimate recipient of my work.
