I build jewelry with gems, glass, pearls, silver and found objects. Woven together, the beads create clusters rich in color and texture, but it’s the way these elements reflect light differently that makes this unique mix work so well.
Many of my creations follow a botanical theme with color combinations taken directly from my garden.
Attention to detail is critical. Every crimp is capped, every wire filed smooth and every design is original. I am intrigued by the coexisting contradictions in life and I try and bring these into my work. My jewelry is at once vibrant and subtle, sophisticated and whimsical. It’s surprising at every turn, like life itself.
