photo-etching technique. For the last 12 years I have been a
sculptor and printmaker. Jewelry, for me, is the offspring of these
two art forms. Each piece feels like a small sculpture and the
etched surface is a direct product of printmaking. Pattern and
texture become my palette more than color. I am also drawn to words
and narrative and a good story. While choosing imagery for a piece
of jewelry, I have the privilege of beginning a story that the
eventual wearer gets to finish. My jewelry might not be considered
precious due to a lack of gems and gold but when a favorite piece is
found at the back of the sock drawer three years lost, my hope is
that the finder will feel as though they have discovered a treasure.
