Strong Designs for Strong People!

Hello! I have been a humble artist, basically, since birth. As a veteran with disabilities, I face daily challenges, and would like to think that I do so with a smile, (with only the occasional grimace, Ha!) My designs are based on life experiences along with tradition and ancient history. Now throw in a pinch of post-modern, Steampunk, Gothic, Neo Victorian and Art Nouveau and you have just began my favorite recipes for great designs. My designs cover jewelry, wearable art, art objects and the more utilitarian items such as knives

Goals: To create great art and jewelry with meaning, to showcase ancient mythologies and traditions. I am amazed to see the influences of the ancients that surround exists all around us.

Approach to Art: Jewelry is wearable art! Jewelry says something about the owner! My designs are bold, strong, and full of LIFE! (Just like you!) My designs range from simple and elegant, all the way over to dark, complex and layered.

Quality: Frankly, why spend your hard earned money on handmade items, when flashy, fashion-of-moment items are being thrown at you every minute of the day? Why, because deciding to own a piece of handmade, artisan work means you share a bond with not just the creator, but with an entire community of positive, creative people!
One example of our commitment to quality shows in every piece. Please note that all joints and banding are soldered in place using silver or 14kt gold solder. Every piece is fabricated using the same techniques a master bench jeweler or goldsmith uses.

Okay, so what about me? What do you want to know? That, if given the chance, I will eat every bit of chocolate in the house? The facts around my disabilities are private and personal. I will only say that I own so very much to my family, and the many real friends I have. My family and friendships are what are most important in the world to me. Life is full of challenges every single day. Life is not easy, but it is more sweet than bitter!
Television hold little interest for me, but I have a weakness for NCIS and House. I would so Gibbs' slap Greg!

IMPORTANT: Most all of our new work is available in solid karat gold. Please contact us for details and pricing.
