The desire to create three-dimensional objects led me to explore a
variety of artistic mediums including sculpture, ceramics and
metalsmithing. Through this exploration I eventually discovered that
metalsmithing, more specifically jewelry making, is the medium in
which I feel most able to create the objects that I envision. The
jewelry designs stem from interests in natural organic forms and
geometric shapes that are combined to create unique outlines that I
than use as a basis for my work. Surface texture is also of great
interest to me when I am designing. I attempt to develop new and
intriguing patterns and textures to enhance and embellish the basic
forms of the jewelry. It is my hope that by combining different
shapes and outlines with various textures and patterns I can create
jewelry that is interesting as well as innovative.
