I have always been a collector and observer of the world. As a child, I would sit under the weeping willow tree in our backyard and dig for rocks. Dad and I would then spend hours tumbling these rough rocks into finished gems- a magical transformation! In college I chose to study architecture. That sheltering weeping willow tree in my backyard always reminded me that ‘place’ is what grounds us and moves us. Architectural forms and details float in my brain, always ready to offer up a great shape or pattern. Technique, shape and tradition are my foundation, but I add my own modern aesthetic. I hope you’ll find my jewelry feels distinctive, unconventional, and enduring.
