I studied Jewelry Design and Fabrication at F.I.T in NYC.
I'm all about old-fashioned hands-on craftsmanship and original design. Everything you see in my shop has been handmade solely by me and is my original design. I work exclusively in silver and use only natural gemstones.
I find the past to be my biggest visual inspiration; mainly ancient Greek jewelry, metalwork, pottery and sculpture- but I love how that got reinterpreted in the 20s and 30s in the Art Deco movement, and how then the Art Deco movement moved through the 40s and 50s and got reinterpreted in the 80s.
What I really love about jewelry is it's endurance and permanence- and its power- both as a vehicle for portable wealth and symbol of "status" and as a spiritual talismanic art.
I infuse all my work with soul, spirituality, and the beauty of the ages.
