Hammer, Fire, and Metal. Now it's a Party!

With a Fine Arts degree and 26 years’ experience as a Bench Jeweler, I’ve branched out to open my own studio full time. I create custom pieces for my clients as well as offering my own jewelry designs.

My jewelry studio supports all types of construction including milling, buffing, soldering, stone setting, ring sizing, and virtually any type of jewelry repair. I specialize in hand-crafted jewelry pieces which are not machine made.

I’m also a practiced blacksmith with a full forging shop.

Beating on hot metal is my idea of fun!
