About

ME
My creativity sparked when my grandfather taught me to weld, which quickly turned into a torch obsession. My work with metal has evolved into a line of jewelry constructed from recycled bullet casings. I use materials perceived as deadly and transform them into beautiful pieces of art, and so Art of War Designs was born. Aside from bullets I love taking photographs, writing, welding, and making all kinds of things from random tems I find on this journey.

WAR
I find myself extremely fascinated by the ideology behind war. What is it inside our ourselves that keeps us in constant battle? I am an advocate for peace, but truly believe that the only way we will ever achieve peace is to understand and embrace both sides, dark and light, in our world and in ourselves.

ART
Jewelry from Art of War is either one of a kind or reproduced in small quantities. All bullet casing are waste reclaimed from shooting ranges and military salvage yards. Art of War Designs uses recycled, antique and vintage items whenever possible. All items from Art of War are handcrafted with love and care in Los Angeles. If you have a bullet that has meaning to you, I would be more than happy to make it into a custom accessory.

LIFE
After 10 amazing years of city life in LA...I am trying on a county existence. I currently reside in Freeport, Maine with my boyfriend and my two twin pitbulls Ruby & Clyde. We own and operate a local restaurant (www.oldworldgourmet.com), and are currently renovating our first home.

**Please note that I do not condone the use of guns in violent acts against fellow human beings or animals. I do, however, enjoy target shooting for fun.
