As with so many I dream of a more peaceful, loving world. In reaching for this vision I am compelled by a gentle and clarifying energy within nature when we open to her infinitely sublime and subtle beauty. I hope that my calling to share a wordless suggestion of this grace, inspires and uplifts others along their journey. I use techniques ancient and enduring to the art of jewelry making, such as wrapping, forging, and forming metal. These fundamental methods fully engage my hands and heart, in a soulful exchange with simple elements. Through texturing, firing, and oxidizing, patinas emerge reflective of patterns within nature. Working with natural materials such as wood, seeds, and stones keep me connected to the source of my inspiration. My intention is to imbue each piece with gratitude for our Mother Earth and a symbolic expression of her soothing beauty for you.
