I am inspired by nature and pattern and I work to bring both texture and balance
to my work, while respecting the boundaries of the materials I've chosen and the demands of making the jewelry wearable and the clocks functional. I strive to evoke the patterns, textures and shapes from nature that are as simple as they are beautiful. For my jewelry, I use fine silver, 22k gold, semi-precious gems and both traditional as well as more current metal-smithing techniques including hydraulic press forming, fold forming, fuse forming & precious metal clay. For my clocks, I work in copper, brass, stainless steel and aluminum which I highly texture, corrugate, patinate, and employ many of my
jewelry techniques. You can see my ‘jeweler’s touch’ in the gemstones and fresh
water pearls that adorn the clocks as well.
