About the Artist 

My path as a metalsmith and jewelry designer has been a lifelong pursuit. Starting in my early teens I became captivated by both historical and contemporary works in metal. The detail and precision are both challenging and rewarding. In my work, I draw inspiration from ancient alphanumerical systems, contemporary architecture, and my own personal cultural history. I am intrigued with balance and proportion and feel as if each piece will find the axis on the wearer. My work is an exploration of form and materials, each equally important. My materials, coconut shell seed pods, bamboo, precious, and non-precious become the vocabulary of elements. I feel firmly rooted in the historical tradition of my craft. I am committed to the use of materials for their color texture and versatility. Often the material is the inspiration for the piece of jewelry. Lives and works in New York, NY.
