Photographer Misses Getting Dirty and Starts Making Jewelry
I've been a wedding photographer for long enough to remember the surprise of developing film then printing in the darkroom. When digital became the norm for photography I missed both the surprise and the tactical part of the creative process.
Over the years I've dabbled in jewelry design, plastic & rubber in the 90's, lampwork bead making in the early 2000's and in 2011 wax carving or forged and hand built metal. I work with the wax or metal as a partner so that each piece is organically formed by both not planned and executed my me alone.

If I was to compare my designs to music it would be jazz as they are organically conceived and grown. Inspired by freedom in life and nature the materials used and I work together each giving into each other as we collaborate on the forms created.
