Elko New Market, MN
I am a Minnesotan metalsmith who has been making jewelry professionally since 1999. I work with sterling silver and natural rocks gathered from around the Great Lakes area. The ritual of gathering the rocks is integral to my craft. I flow between searching for specific rocks for a piece I have in mind, to designing based on whatever rocks I happen to come across in my exploration. The interaction between nature and adornment is something I strive to convey in my jewelry.
