My jewelry designs are inspired by architecture, geometry, and unusual material combinations
my jewelry is hand-fabricated using cutting, forming, forging, soldering, fusing, folding, weaving, and oxidizing with patinas to create contemporary designs. i often incorporate rubber or recycled bicycle tubing and other interesting materials into my designs.
Some of my newer designs are folded using fine silver sheet, others are cut sterling tubes that I weave with stainless steel cord, creating 3 dimensional shapes without the use of solder.
My goal is to create minimal, timeless pieces that can be worn every day and for special occasions alike.
