My jewelry is about connecting my heart to the movement of my hands, and connecting with the heart of each person who finds joy in my artwork. Every piece has an aura, which I believe attracts diverse individuals to all the varying components and layers within my jewelry. I fashion my art out of a plethora of materials such as semiprecious/precious stones, multicolored wire, crystals, sterling silver, copper, brass, gold-filled, lampwork glass, anodized aluminum, and pearls. I coil, bend, twist, flatten, and form wire; along with hammering, texturing, sawing, and torching silver. My designs typically begin by manipulating small, diverse materials that blend together to create a bigger, poignant expression.
