Combining geometric lines and vivid colors, my elegant hand-crafted jewelry is the culmination of a life-long fascination with structural elements and a love of clean, vibrant design. The result is lightweight jewelry that is bold, adventurous, and easy to wear. Whether a distinctive one-of-a-kind necklace, or colorful earrings, all my work is hand-fabricated using steel, sterling silver, 18 karat gold, and colorful, durable powder-coated brass in a range of colorways and sizes.
Working intuitively, I draw upon a cache of visual memories: bridges, elevated roadways, telephone towers, and city scaffolding. Through arranging and rearranging, simple lines and basic shapes accumulate into voluminous structures, in other instances these forms are distilled down to their essential elements. Monumental or minimal, a singular art object, or part of a small product line, each jewelry piece provides the wearer an opportunity to comfortably take up a little more space.
My jewelry practice combines a life-long fascination with architectural structures and a love of clean, vibrant design. Originally trained in graphic design with a strong interest in drawing, I found my niche by transforming bold lines into three-dimensional structural jewelry pieces. Over the last twenty five years, my one-of-a-kind and production jewelry have been featured in numerous books and magazines, including Vogue Italia. My works are in the permanent collections of the Fuller Craft Museum and the Racine Art Museum and in the private holdings of prominent jewelry collectors.
