My jewelry is all hand fabricated. I use sterling silver or sterling silver with 18k and 22k yellow gold combinations. Most of my work is one of a kind or limited edition. I use stones that are hand cut into my shapes, white diamonds and pearls. The work is textured with found objects using a rolling mill and shaped with hammers and various other forming tools. I fuse segments of my jewelry to create color, depth, texture and diversity by using recycled 18k and 22k yellow gold combination. The pieces are then oxidized, sandblasted and accented with small areas of high polished surfaces. My inspirations are found mainly in my surroundings with nature as a major component. Architectural forms also play a role in my design concepts.
