Jewelry isn't just for silver & gold anymore

The complexity of nature can be flawlessly captured in the rings of it’s trees. They are a scribe of our history and a monument of our future. Wood has a natural beauty that can’t be emulated by silver and gold. Each piece tells a story, each ring recites the happenings of a year. I design my jewelry to capture this natural artistry while infusing a simple, modern elegance into each piece.

I collect wood locally, wherever I can. Sometimes it's easy to identify the type of wood that I've found, other times it can be very difficult or nearly impossible.

Once I find a downed branch or log that seems fitting, I cut off a section and take it home to begin the creative process. Each one-of-a-kind piece is cut, shaped, sanded, oiled, lacquered, drilled, assembled, and photographed. It can take several days per item to complete the entire process.

I use a special rotary head to knock off any loose or degraded wood, which gives many of the pieces their very unique, natural shape. Then I oil and lacquer each piece to deepen it's natural colour, protect it, and give it a slight gloss. Once I have the final pieces completed, I let the shape, form, and grain inspire me to pick out ornaments and chains that will compliment them. And Voila! Beautiful, one-of-a-kind wooden jewelry is born!
