About

Just a guy making cool jewelry every now and then.

I live with my wife and two children in Lexington, KY. My family is my life. My wife works by my side as my companion, assistant, model, and supporter. My children keep me in shape, both mentally and physically.

I always wanted to do something artistic with my life. I have an uncle that taught me the principles of painting and drawing while I was young. I looked up to him in almost every way, but I saw how much of a struggle it was for him to make it as an artist. I took every art class imaginable in high school and finally stumbled across a jewelry making class. I decided that was it, I wanted to be a jeweler.

I received a bench jewelers apprenticeship with a local jeweler my last two years of High School. I eventually moved to California and completed the Graduate Jewelers program at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). It was while I was at GIA that I discovered CAD/CAM jewelry applications for design and manufacturing. I quickly took to 3D design and pushed ahead with the idea of designing jewelry. After several years of work as a freelance custom designer, I decided to return to school to further refine my skills as a jeweler; I obtained my Master's of Art from Ball State University in Muncie, IN in 2011.

I have worked in the jewelry industry for over half of my life. At this point I have covered nearly every facet of the industry, no pun intended. I have worked as a bench jeweler, 3D designer, customer service representative, sales associate and office manager. I always work for the best, and have always been able to contribute in a variety of ways. The jewelry industry is all I really know, and though there may be days I wonder what could have been if I had selected a different field, I wouldn't have it any other way: Jewelry is my life and my passion.

My ideas and art are influenced more by the idea of Steampunk, the era, the lifestyle, and the mechanics, than that of actual created works. I attempt to place myself in the era, and create what I feel a jeweler of that time would have designed.

I explore the elements of mechanics, stone setting and assembly. This unique combination of assemblage with industrial parts and gemstones is the work that I have created; it is what I refer to as The Mechanics of Jewelry.
