About

Wearable art made from reclaimed industrial metals and raw stones.

A pile of old painted metal or a bin of chunky old stones makes me weak in the knees.

The thread that runs through all of my work is a love for the rawness of a material and an appreciation for the effects of time and wear on it. I don't like "perfect". I prefer the idiosyncrasies that make each piece unique. Weather and time give a rich patina to painted metals that I find utterly appealing. I also have an addiction for typography and graffiti.

I re-purpose vintage license plates found in dusty attics, barns and auctions, into painted metal hand cut "tiles". The license plates are really a source for swaths of gorgeous well aged color and typography! My colorful mosaic belt buckles stem from my ongoing exploration of industrial metals as personal adornment. They recall a distinctly American car culture.

Each buckle is unique and is the culmination of a labor intensive multi-step process that includes cutting, shaping, hammering, filing, welding, cementing, beveling, waxing and polishing. Every buckle is signed and given a unique number engraved on the back.

I have been designing jewelry and accessories full time for more than a decade. In addition to my work with vintage metals, my work is inspired by the unusual combinations of materials I am drawn to including my own charms, gem stones, salvaged metals and bits of vintage toys and machinery.

Thanks for visiting!
