When I was a young girl I loved all kinds of jewelry. As I grew up, a child of the 80’s, I wore crazy Madonna type earrings (the bigger the better) and gummy bracelets & big brass bangles all up my arms. People in my small town school used to tell me that I had fishing lures in my ears. I started with one class at the 92nd Street Y in NYC in 2002 and never looked back.
I use sterling silver, copper, gold, shakudo, shibuchi & bronze in my work. My main focus for the past few years has been my mixed metal work with Shakudo & Sterling and creating one of a kind pieces.
My jewelry reflects my personal and individual approach to style. I get inspiration from my urban surroundings. I see beauty in places where most would not. I look at everyday objects like street grates, elevators or railings and I see jewelry. I have a fascination with roundness and spots and this is greatly reflected in my work. As I continue to learn new techniques, study with new teachers, and work solo in my studio, my work evolves and grows.
