My jewelry designs flow from my imagination and evolves from the raw materials into wearable art. As an artist and designer, I manipulate, form, solder, drill and texture the metal, then unite it with one-of-a-kind exotic and traditional stones, gems and pearls. Several of my distinctive designs are created from unique materials not commonly used for jewelry.
Growing up on a farm in Nebraska heightened my appreciation of nature, instilled in me a compelling work ethic and with that, I feel a sense of fulfillment to create art with products from the earth.
I found my passion for metal during a silversmithing class and was further inspired with a lapidary class, learning stone cutting and polishing techniques. From there, it became an adventure with an infinite myriad of possibilities with precious metals, slabs of stone and individual pearls. Sourcing unique and one-of-a-kind stones for my customers is especially fun.
From simple to eclectic, classic to contemporary, wearing beautiful objects is a simple way to bring art into your life.
