Thank you for visiting Modern Bird Jewelry and investigating my work.

I draw inspiration for my jewelry from my surroundings and experiences. Hearing the sound of a bird’s song, and then seeing her fly by; walking down tree lined streets filled with historic row homes; witnessing the love between two people. I enjoy interpreting what I see through my work. I use traditional metalsmithing techniques such as hand sawing, filing, forming, forging, texturing, soldering and adding patina.
My jewelry has a modern feel spun with sentiment and soul.

My design aesthetic has been influenced by my love of nature and modern design.
I am in love with wild birds, owls, butterflies, flowers, tropical plants, flowing rivers, big trees and the sound of their leaves rattling in the wind. Some of my favorite artists and designers include Joan Miro, Paul Klee, Alexander Calder, Harry Bertioa & the Eames's.

I strive to create jewelry that you will connect with. Sweet reminders of loved ones, life changing events and the love of natural world.
Whether simple or complicated, I love to create a piece of art that will bring you joy and make you feel special & beautiful.

So, how did I get here?
Well, after starting out in the 70's as a scrappy kid making jewelry out of beads and telephone wire, I apprenticed (learning the ropes of retail) in the 80's at a store called Raggedy's Rainbow in South Miami. By the 90's I became involved in the world of antiques and collectibles and spent many years collecting, displaying and selling Mid-Century Modern treasures at my Vintage Shop, Decades Ago-Go in Ybor City, Florida.
I hope you enjoy my creations, please come back and visit often.
