HI AND WELCOME TO MY ETSY SHOP

My fabricated designs are all all unique one-of-a-kind pieces. My sculptural forms are painstakingly carved from wax and cast, I then create molds from the original silver castings.

ME & MY METAL

I've been designing and fabricating jewelry for 20 years now. I work out of a home studio in downtown Austin, Texas. I love design and fabrication, even in our hot Texas summers, when my studio is a furnace.

INFLUENCES

I'm inspired by the larger-than-life worlds of rock music, super heroes, Hellenic and Roman myths, and the often dystopic futures portrayed in science fiction.
