My avocation as a goldsmith began in 2003 after retiring to Mexico
from the U.S. Many of my designs have roots in Aztec and other
Mexican symbols, as well as from the spatial relationships found in
the designs of Mexican architects such as Barragan and Legorreta.
Much of my work contains fine opals, amber and other stones found in
Mexico, as well as other semi-precious and precious stones from
around the world. All of my work is fabricated from silver and gold
and my most satisfying hours are spent with a saw in my hand.
