Studio

Jewelry fabrication combines aesthetic expression and technical engineering. This blend satisfies both my love of beauty as well as analytic precision. I strive for elegant forms at times simple but often complex. Intricate constructions such as handmade chains, one of a kind beads and closures are incorporated throughout my work.
