Biography

Statement

I am inspired by nature forms, for example river stones. I am also inspired by jewelry itself and by metal like sterling silver and the forms it can take. My works are about the integration of shape, form, line, surface, and light. The simple changes of the surface on the metal gives the pieces lightness and delicacy. All my pieces are about simplicity and subtlety. It's all about allowing shapes and materials to speak for themselves in my jewelry.
