Jewelry, to me, symbolizes LIFE

Jewelry, to me, symbolizes LIFE - in all its beauty, the connections we make, the delicate balance we strive to achieve, the colorfulness of our experiences, the contrasts . . . all coming together to create a beautiful whole.

My creative journey has been both literal and figurative. Having grown up in India, lived and worked in the UK, and now raising my family in the Midwest - the diversity of these experiences and cultures flavors who I am and the work I create. Regardless of local, I have found that the desire for simplicity, comfort, and individuality exists everywhere.

Every piece of my jewelry is hand-forged by me in my home studio using silver, copper, semi-precious beads, gemstones, enamels, and gold accents. No two pieces are ever identical. I use a combination of metalsmithing tools - hammers, a rolling mill, a torch and a hydraulic press - and an ever-expanding list of techniques (I love experimenting and learning new things!) to create my designs. My background as an Architect shows in my love for details - the precision of lines, measurements and angles, and the balance found in asymmetry - and crosses over into my jewelry designs.

Working with hollow forms to bring out three dimensionality and creating handmade, asymmetrical chains formed of individualistic links are my current design passions. The interconnectedness of the links in my handmade chains (and the uniqueness of each individual link) reminds me of the interconnectedness we have with each other - family, friends, colleagues, and our communities.

Every piece of jewelry I create is designed to be as individual as you are, comfortable, durable, and a joy to wear.
