As a young boy, I was introduced to metalsmithing. My experience in a silver working class taught me the basics of soldering and the potential of metalsmithing and design as an art form. Over the years, since that initial exposure in 1974, I have explored the endless possibilities of manipulating metal. I have developed my own design concepts and have become passionate for the art of jewelry design. Through self-discovery and self-generation, I have integrated my own techniques in order to produce an infinitely unique jewelry line. By incorporating the element of "Movement" and change, I present a unique yet classic alternative to traditional jewelry. The movement in my designs allow for the effect of "Chiaroscuro" as it relates to the changes in light and shadow during the passing of time. My designs are in their purest form- "Simple-yet Elegant."…

Over the years, since that initial exposure in 1974, I have explored the endless possibilities of manipulating metal. I have developed my own design concepts and have become passionate for the art of jewelry design. Through self-discovery and self-generation, I have integrated my own techniques in order to produce an infinitely unique jewelry line. By incorporating the element of "Movement" and change, I present a unique yet classic alternative to traditional jewelry. The movement in my designs allow for the effect of "Chiaroscuro" as it relates to the changes in light and shadow during the passing of time. My designs are in their purest form- "Simple-yet Elegant."

Through construction techniques or a "lost wax" casting-utilizing a "waste-mold" which can not be reproduced, each design is made by hand, one at a time so as to uphold the uniqueness and quality of my work: producing in this manner gives me inspiration for the next design. Never compromising on materials allows for substantial and strong work, as is apparent in the "architectural" integrity of each design I utilize fine metals such as Platinum, 18 karat White, Green, and Rose gold as well as AS930 Argentium Sterling Silver, 93% Silver alloyed with germanium which inhibits tarnishing. The introduction of precious gems instills the utmost elegance into an already one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry. The "juxtaposition of semicircular, square and flat design characteristics creates a strong yet proportionate balance in my work." Many clients enjoy my rings as unique engagement and wedding bands, as the design depicts the uniqueness of their bonds together. I ultimately wish my clientele to feel a connection to their piece, as "Art form and bearer should compliment each other." My designs are appealing to both women and men and each design maintains a Classic style while remaining up to date with current fashion trends.
And now designing and creating leather bags, belts, cuffs and clutches!!!
