Materials, textures and colors inspire me.  I love taking a wide range of materials and melding them into something new and beautiful.  I like using unusual stones, fossils and found objects like antique buttons.  I enjoy taking things that are interesting and have a history and transforming them into modern jewelry to wear and even hand down to the next generation. I follow my intuition and creative process. Ideas come from everywhere! Once I got an idea for a piece from the wallpaper at a hotel where I was staying.  I create my designs using a variety of metalsmithing techniques. The end result are hand wrought pieces that are unique, modern and elegant.
