I am a contemporary metal jewelry artist that uses traditional metalsmithing techniques to create edgy, one of a kind designs. I use primarily silver in my works, but I also incorporate contrast in my pieces by mixing metals, using patinas, and incorporating unique cuts and intense color of precious and semiprecious stones. I pull inspiration from both organic and geometric forms. Colors and textures I find in nature are a constant source of stimulation for my designing process. I hand fabricate all of my pieces using metalsmithing techniques such as soldering, reticulation, fold forming, etching and keum-boo.
