First, just to let you know I am happy to take custom orders and I can ship pretty much anywhere, just "convo" me and I'll add location to any piece. Please note I can't take returns on custom orders.

I've been lucky enough to have traveled to some pretty unusual places, visiting several very remote cultures. I've spent a great deal of time alone "out in nature,"—being especially fond of collecting rocks and feathers and seashells. And I've been an artist all my life, working in many mediums.

The combined experiences of culture and nature are reflected in the way I design and make my jewelry. With the subtle textures and colors, the asymmetry in the hand made materials, these designs have that natural look and feel—very personal but with a hip, big world flavor.

Think about it, humans have adorned themselves with natural objects since their earliest existence. I am gratified knowing that I travel a deeply worn path, adding my own unique artistic expression to this long journey.
