About

My style is informed by a life split between city and country. Surrounded by contemporary and gothic architecture while growing up in Chicago, many of my pieces are sleek with clean lines while others have been oxidized with a dark patina for character and depth. Then there is my fascination with nature, especially the stones Mother Nature produces. I credit that to spending every weekend camping with my family as a kid in the lush (well, humid) landscapes of Kentucky, While exploring I always stuck more stones in my pockets than they could hold!
Now I live in a city with an amazing park system and need to travel only 5 minutes for a 'nature fix' and to feel like I'm in a different world. Part of my heart is in Chicago, the other is in Louisville. My home is Chilou.

Making jewelry brings me joy, challenges, and keeps me learning. I use my grandfathers old worn tools to create textures. I use stones cut and polished by amazing artists. And I use my hands to experiment and create unique pieces.
