About

Historically inspired jewelry handcrafted in New Orleans.

Hailing from New Orleans, my inspiration is founded in the built environment around me, its various states of its decay, as well as the everchanging landscape from which it emerges.

My jewelry work comprising metal etchings of historic maps - some dating from as early as 1700 culled from archives - make permanent ephemeral parts of history.

From raw sheets of metal my etchings transform into jewelry through an intensive, handcrafted process, ultimately creating small, wearable archives in suspension.

The etching process itself creates an inherent tension, even a paradox: it removes material to showcase the past, leaving a certain permanence behind—but that permanence is fragile, since the etching leaves only a whispering trace. It tenderly immortalizes the transitory landscapes of our history: from trade routes and forgotten swamps to abandoned asylums whose architectural residue still decorates the landscape today.

My work blurs the lines between the past and the present by capturing a sense of parts of cities in the process of becoming ruins and of the present fading into history.
