I like to view myself as a multi-skilled jewellery Artist specialising in Wax Sculpting, Metal-smithing, & the application of Mechanical Engineering to Jewelry. For 23 years I have enjoyed creating clever ways of “Movement”. Whether it’s a turning wheel, flower petal spinning, multi hinged clasp system for Arthritic Fingers or Multiform Pendant that can be worn five different ways, I enjoy the challenge of creating different mechanical wearable works of art.
My Concepts include: Sterling Silver & 14k Gold Multifunctional Dynamic Designs that can be worn Multiple Ways. Pendants that become Rings, Kinetic Wearable Sculpture, Rings that open or change diameter size for Arthritic Fingers
.The Process of "Lost Wax Casting" is the primary way of creating my work. I first start with the most difficult part, the Concept/Idea. Then moving onto Drawings, Wax carving and Sculpting. Then "Lost Wax Casting", Soldering Hinges, Stone Setting, & finishing with Final Polishing
