About

I began working in metal 12 years ago. I graduated from Earlham College in 2006 with a B.A. in Art, studio emphasis in Jewelry and Metalsmithing. My work has been on display at Miami University of Ohio, Indiana University, and Earlham College. I have participated in juried exhibitions at the Herron School of Art, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. In 2002, I received a Gold Key from the National Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.

I spend roughly one third of the year in the wilderness leading groups of teenagers on 3 week backpacking and canoeing courses. Much of my inspiration for my art comes from traveling in wild places. I strive to make pieces that allow the wearer to be observant, by noticing and feeling textures, by considering how something was made and the environmental impact its existence represents, and by feeling how pieces interact with the body…

I spend roughly one third of the year in the wilderness leading groups of teenagers on 3 week backpacking and canoeing courses. Much of my inspiration for my art comes from traveling in wild places. I strive to make pieces that allow the wearer to be observant, by noticing and feeling textures, by considering how something was made and the environmental impact its existence represents, and by feeling how pieces interact with the body. A piece of jewelry does not only have to be an item of decoration, it can provide an experience. An experience that can provoke enriching thoughts, conversations, and practices. This aspect of creating art brings me joy.

I focus my time working in places that I love, which means I am only able to make things a few months out of the year. Because of this, custom orders are not always available, and inventory is not listed when I am in the wilderness. Please check back often to see when items are available.

PLEASE allow up to 2 weeks for items to ship. Some items may ship sooner.

Thank you for visiting my shop and please contact me with any questions.

Enjoy!
