About

Most of my designs come from my interpretation of the world around me.

I am writing to introduce you to my work. I am a Jewelry artist with a focus on Contemporary Native American themes.
Most of my designs come from my interpretation of the world around me. I continue to challenge my abilities’ by trying new ways to make a piece seem uncomplicated but multifaceted. This approach allows me to maintain the traditional styles with a more contemporary twist to the overall finished piece. I do all the lapidary work on a majority of the cabochon cut stones. I typically buy raw uncut material then will cut the stones to make the design of the piece work. This allows me to take an idea and finish it from beginning to end. While I use a variety of materials and processes in each piece my methodology is consistent. And that is to bring into being the ideas in my head with an underlying theme of traditional but contemporary Navajo Jewelry.
