....fusing metals with metaphors to the hum of ancient myths.

Reclaimed fairtrade metals and fairytale stones passionately sculpted by a diminutive urban alchemist living in an one-squaremile-one traffic-light village on the north shore of Long Island, NY.

And I would absolutely love to embellish you!

I design in dusty boots to really wild music surrounded by seven mischievous fairies and a pack of rescue animals. I design for my Lord.Designs inspired by mythology and the beauty of the soul made with love in my Sears Roebuk studio from 1923 in Sea Cliff on the windy shores of Long Island, New York
I work to really wild music, surrounded by a bunch of rescue animals and seven mischievous fairies.

Mining for metals and gemstones harm ecosystems and exploit human beings, therefore my metals are recycled and fair trade and my gemstones are conflict free.

Wear one of my designs – we’ll both be thrilled you did - it makes your soul smile and you can feel the beat of the music.
