“My jewelry is created from Argentium Silver, Gold, heat colored Titanium and Copper using traditional fabrication metalsmithing techniques. I am inspired by the natural world and each piece of my work has a unique story to tell. I deliberately arrange elements that appeal to the senses and emotions of the person who finally wears my jewelry. To a casual observer, my work would immediately convey a naturalistic nuance with an Asian infusion. My work has a Zen-like love of the natural world that makes me mindful of the beauty of the elements that surround us.
I form the metal with hand tools to create my Art Jewelry. The directness of forging metal in this manner makes each piece of my jewelry unique and a piece of art. At this point the piece of jewelry’s story will become a part of the one’s life who will ultimately wear it.”
