To me, jewelry is art. Its mission is to surprise, to awaken and even to shock. It must be unexpected….and insist that you stop, emotionally interact, and prepare to be changed.
I enjoy raw design, imperfection and contrast, whether through texture, form, color...it’s good for the senses….soothing, yet jarring...like jumping into a pool of ice cold water on a hot day.
My jewelry is a collaboration...the metal and I both play a role in what it will become. I start with an idea, but the piece ultimately has the final say. It transforms into whatever it wants to be, and speaks as it must. We make a good team.
