About

WHY I DESIGN AND CONSTRUCT JEWELRY . . .
It is such fun creating jewelry, sorting beautiful stones until the right combinations emerge or until the metal yields to the form in my mind. It is delightful and fulfilling to design a custom piece with a client being part of the creative process. These wearable sculptures of stone and metal have become a most rewarding part of my life.

You can see my jewelry "live" at
