Creative Jewlery for Creative Souls.

It was not until I was an aspiring English teacher at East Carolina University that I stumbled into a metalsmithing class and regained a childhood love, reflecting on days spent in my mother's salon, reconstructing costume jewelry.
My work is often recognizable, yet continuously evolving, as I have numerous ideas and concepts floating around in my imagination, and the skills to bring those ideas to fruition. My work is organic, leaning towards art nouveau. I am fond of texture and obsessed with wings. Often pressing the feathers of birds and the wings of bees, cicadas and butterflies into sterling, copper, brass and fine carat gold.
Working mostly in sterling silver, with the addition of rusted metal, and bits of gold and platinum, I fabricate lyrical pieces of wearable art. One of my signature details is the use of rivets to hold elements together, allowing perpetual movement of independent, miniature pieces.
The back of my pieces tend to have a secret message or additional ideas sketched in. My work relies heavily on symbolism: gold discs represent the sun; silver, the moon. People have said there is something undeniably raw and passionate about my work: a complete story told briefly.
