Artist Bio

Modern yet organic forms, mixed with forging and hammering techniques are what inspire my jewelry designs. All pieces are handmade using traditional methods of metalsmithing such as fabrication, forming, texturing, and stone setting. 

I was originally drawn to metalsmithing because of its ancient roots. The tools and processes have been used for centuries, and my inspiration comes from these methods. I love how metal can be transformed and shaped. If you change your mind or make a mistake, nothing is permanent and your ideas can be re-created and the metal can be recycled. I also enjoy working with metal because it is a material that is timeless, and pieces can be passed down for generations. 

My inspiration comes from a variety of places. From the materials I use and their properties, to design elements, processes, patterns, systems, connections, and repetition.
