About

The objects that I make are inspired by my past and historical references. Jewelry as wearable art has always been important to me because it plays with the personal relationship to the body and the nostalgic connection it has created between people throughout history. I create hand-crafted jewelry inspired by Victorian mourning jewelry with a modern and edgy twist using both traditional and alternative metalsmithing techniques. My pieces are dark, deft and delicate constructions of sterling silver etched with antique wallpaper patterns and accented with gemstones, raw minerals, fur, exotic leathers and 24k gold vermeil. My pieces are predominately crafted using traditional metalsmithing techniques such as lost wax casting, piercing, forming, fabricating and enameling.
