Artist Statement
I work in elemental materials, treasures from earth. The metal frames a jewel to allow others to engage with the gem, to wear it, treasure it, keep it safe. Because of the everlasting nature of these materials, I consider how one is remembered by future generations from the jewelry that they wore and passed down. It is a privilege to work in these fine materials. My approach focuses on fresh style with a thread of reverence.
