Modern jewelry from uncommon materials
My aesthetic is modern, my chosen materials are mostly non-precious and often non-traditional. I work with sterling silver, stainless steel, epoxy resin, ultrasuede, polypropylene, and silicone rubber, among others. I look to find beauty in the mundane. Most of my pieces are one of a kind, or part of a limited edition.
I worked for many years as an art director, graphic designer and illustrator and came to jewelry by chance. A visit to a museum exhibition of a well known jewelry artist intrigued me so much that I enrolled in the jewelry program at a local college. I found in jewelry a way to integrate my love of design and art history with my background in such disciplines as typography, textiles, painting, drawing and printmaking.
