It is the timeless beauty of nature that inspires me to create and the impression that it leaves with me influences my designs. Particularly , I find inspiration in nature - plants, mountains and the sea -as well as the natural beauty of precious and semi precious gemstones and natural pearls.
The purpose of my art is to showcase the beauty and uniqueness of the wearer. In designing, I bring out my pencil and paper to sketch, and once my design has taken form, I am ready to create. Often if there is a stone, it is the stone that provides the inspiration for the design.
Fine and Sterling silver are my preference when manipulating metal to become something special. Often I combine these with precious and semiprecious gemstones and sometimes gold. For color, I use a variety of coloring agents including enamel. To learn more about metals and gemstones, please see the About Silver and Gemstones page.
I aim to reflect a modern sophistication with each handcrafted piece as each one is not only unique but also one of a kind. The jewelry ranges from the simply elegant to statement pieces and have been recipients of several awards, shown and sold in galleries, artisan events, businesses, and fairs, as well as published.
