With my work, I try to capture the sublime beauty found in natural forms and patterns that are awe inspiring to us all. I use high karat gold, palladium and oxidized silver in most pieces. I use diamonds and colored stones to produce a dusting effect, or complete a pattern, as opposed to being the focus. My pieces can start with a casting and have many fabrication steps thereafter, or can be completely fabricated from sheet or stock. I utilize abrasive finishes, embossing and patinas to achieve color and texture.
