Jewelry

My love of nature, home and gemology inspires my use of textures, mixed metals and natural stones in my jewelry.  I handpick all of my gems and hand assemble each piece myself. I use techniques such as fabrication, soldering, a rolling mill to create textures on my metal, cold-joining, casting, precious metal clay, electro-forming, wire wrapping, bead stringing, hand knotting, hammering and metal stamp impression.
