About

Since childhood, staring at old tintypes and paintings, I found myself not fixed on the whitewashed faces, nor the wrinkles in hand and head, nor even the scenes of passion and privilege, but at the adornments of pearl and gold and geometric symmetry of perfect craftsmanship.

It is by happenstance that I fashion most of my work with thirty to ninety percent recycled materials. This is not a play at the social conscious of modern day, but a tribute to days past and the perfection and imperfection of those times. Fashioned from estate, vintage and antiques, using new fittings and recreations when appropriate, my work is created in the hope that it will be seen by my grandchildren in the same light of interest that captured my gaze long ago.

Alongside my creation, or re-creation, of vintage jewelry, you'll find a selection of vintage clothing and my own line of creative projects, primarily fashioned after vintage designs that are difficult to find today.

I hope you'll take a moment and browse through my shop. I think you'll find it filled with unique and beautiful designs that can truly be called one-of-a-kind.
