Artist Statement

I am interested in exploring the concept of collection, and creating contemporary collections of items we accumulate or fetishize. Much of my work is large scale, narrative jewelry fabricated in steel with experimental enamel surfaces. I am also interested in applying these experimental techniques to smaller scale, highly functional jewelry for everyday wear. Working in steel allows my work to be lightweight and strong, and the enamel surface makes it compatible for wearing against the skin.
