About

Making jewelry reminds me of making mudpies in my grandmother's backyard, but without the mess. It's a whole lot of fun and I can do it for hours on end! I work daily to achieve balance and harmony in all areas of my life. I find that everything I see on a daily basis can serve as the inspiration for my next design. Simplicity of form and colour are the foundation of my designs. I try to push the limits of both techniques and materials. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t. The process is the most important thing when I’m working. There's something very Zen about it. I can totally focus on what I'm doing and close out the rest of the world. At the end of the day, the result is great satisfaction and hopefully a wearable piece of art.

I love working with colour. I'm a colour snob of sorts. I like to keep my designs simple, using colour and texture to create depth in tones and finishes. I use various hand-fabrication techniques including riveting, roll printing, forging and hydraulic forming. I usually sketch something out, then form a shape out of copper, applying texture and a chemical patina. This creates a blank canvas to apply the design with colour using colour pencils. The final piece is then sealed with wax and riveted to a base of oxidized silver.

CARE OF YOUR PIECE
The pieces are made with sterling silver and copper which have been oxidized and a patina of colour is applied to each piece. Between each layer of colour a fixative is applied. The final step is a coat of wax which seals and protects the finish. Just wipe clean with a cotton cloth. Do not apply any cleaning product of any kind to the piece.
