My jewelry is an expression of simplicity in motion as I sculpt fluid silver shapes grounded by stones into contemporary bold statements. My hands are guided and inspired by nature’s beauty in stones and the malleable silver.
My jewelry begins as vintage silver dinner forks. I “cold form” this material into simple clean bold lines that typically enfold natural stones. Semi-precious faceted accent stones add balance. My hands, while working with each piece, are guided to reveal designs I believe are already there and are ready to be revealed. I believe this is what art is all about.
As a young boy I marveled at the tools my mother used in making simple sterling silver rings. Not allowed to touch or use these only made me want to use them more. Many years later I found “the box”. The rediscovery of these tools is when my passion took hold. Today I use these instruments every day. One particular pliers touches over 90% of every piece that comes out of my studio.
