There is a magic to fine craft. Its conception doesn’t appear as though forced, but simply, it became. A well executed piece of art has the mystery of birth. I hand fabricate my work because I enjoy being in contact with the materials. I believe that there is a duality to metal that is quite human: it is hard yet can be formed, it can be malleable yet brittle, it can be cruel yet forgiving. I bring these qualities to my work by contrasting strong shapes with delicate textures and patterns made primarily from 18K gold and sterling silver. When I am dedicated to a piece, the world stops and I am present.
My process is a moving meditation. My hope is that this will extend out to the wearer for generations to come.
