Jewelry inspired by nature, designed with an elegant simplicity.
One of a kind and limited production silver and keum boo jewelry.
My jewelry designs are influenced by both the visual and the tactile. Whether it’s the leaves on trees, the roughness of tree bark, or the intricacies of Japanese textile design, I distill these images into my jewelry with an elegant simplicity. My work is textural being pleasing to the eye and the hand at the same time. I create unique textures utilizing original photographs I have taken while traveling. My Yellowstone and Bryce series were developed using photographs I took in our National Parks. I etch the design into a texture plate and then roller print or emboss the design into my metal. After texturing the metal, I dieform and fabricate each piece of jewelry. My Yellowstone and Bryce series is embellished with 24k gold keum boo accents and then oxidized to fully develop the contrasts between the blackened metal and the gold.
