Internationally Exhibited Silversmith Miniature Sculptural Jewelry
All my work is one-of-a-kind. Similar pieces can be produced, but they, too, will be unique.
Color generates excitement, especially color that moves with changes in light. I like to use it in ways that delight and surprise all who view it. It thrills me to watch expressions on people as they discover the surprises.
My work with metals and natural gemstones create organic, sculptural and scenic pieces with movement and color-change characteristics. Varying metal surface textures achieved through reticulation, stamping, roll printing, kumboo and various patinas add mystery and interest to my pieces. Each piece tells a story.
My artistic goal is accomplished when people encountering my work are touched with delight, whimsy, pleasure, self-motivation and hope for the future. Positive creativity is thereby shared & passed on. It is my belief that every person has, at their core, a fabulous gem to discover and reveal. Once they do, they recognize the gems in others. Compassion blossoms and prosperity blooms.
