San Gabriel, CA

My main interest and intention is to create jewelry that combines the best elements of metalworking with those of textile creation. I apply freeform crochet and knitting techniques to fine silver and gold wire in order to sculpt my soft, organic shapes. Torch-fired enamels and pieces of precious metal clay are placed in for color and weight. I create my gradations by interlacing oxidized wire with pure wire.
