Blending the industrial with the organic.
I create and design jewelry that shares your voice, that blends your tenacity with the softer side of your soul. I see your inner grit and the path that has gotten you to where you are today. Designed and created in my Charlottesville, Virginia studio, my work has a distinctive style of edgy elegance in sterling, gold and titanium.
Although I have explored many different media, in jewelry I truly found my match. Small scale. Three-Dimensional. Here I Am. I want to eat the metal. Watch it melt. Transform it from solid to fluid to solid again. I fell in love with the tools, and with the pedestal - the human body. Art to be worn and interacted with every single day. When I found jewelry I'm not sure I had a choice anymore as to what medium would be my craft, my art. It was just who I was.
My art is an ongoing discovery of balance in opposites. I play with the organic juxtaposed with the industrial. Nature married to the contemporary. The soft paired with the hard. The union of elements that evoke the duality that exists in life. Embodying the journey we take, the choices we make, and how beautiful the path can be.
