Why I create jewelry
This is my way of bringing beauty into the world, and therefore into the lives of others. Shapes and forms come to me as ideas, and I have an intense desire to bring those ideas into reality.
Every piece starts with a concept. That concept then becomes a drawing, sometimes working itself out through many rough sketches until a final design is decided upon. After the design process, work begins to create the physical piece. My signature style is created using wrapping and weaving techniques with precious metals. These are the techniques which show up in all of my work, no matter how simple or complex, and give it it's distinct look.
How long a piece takes to be completed depends greatly on the complexity of the design. The most simple taking around three hours, and the most complex taking one hundred or more.
