hi.

i live in east london now though I hail from the california coast. anything and everything can be an inspiration for my jewelry, a book, a walk in the old narrow streets of haggerston, hackney and brick lane, museums, magazines, wild spaces, the trains coming and going from st pancras, a word or phrase or name that conjures a shape.
