“I find sublime beauty in natural forms. My jewelry is not just about the materials, but about the contrast in the materials and the dichotomy that is captured in nature. This balance of texture, color, strength and delicacy are a captivating thread for me. When you wear a piece of my jewelry, it is understood that nature is a part of your philosophy and the way you experience the world.”
I have been designing and fabricating fine jewelry for over twenty years. My jewelry echoes a passion for my garden and the allure of the natural world. I am constantly inspired by nature’s curiosities and feel a deep sense of awe when the seasons come alive. It’s what drives me to evolve my technique and produce work that is both current and grounded.
In my jewelry designs, an organic form may take on a literal translation, which is achieved through a casting process, or reveal itself as an abstract hint, teased out by layering texture, pattern and sparkle. I work in high karat gold, palladium and silver, and favor natural gemstones to highlight their innate brilliance and flaws.
I see fashion and art as bedfellows. I stay true to my craft while producing pieces that are sexy and wearable. My work appeals to women who have a confident sense of style, who appreciate the depth of technique of thoughtfully designed, expertly crafted fine jewelry. Ultimately, it’s about the way the jewelry makes you feel when you put it on.
