Gorgeous gemstones and rich textures. Each pieces starts with the
focal gemstone, cut and polished by my partner / husband. Once the
stone is completed the construction begins from the manipulation of
wire and sheet metals. Textures are achieved from stamping, forging,
and the reticulation of silver. Intense color awareness allows me to
capture subtle colors found within the focal gemstone. I utilize
accent stones or hand applied patinas and the mixed metals of high
karat gold and silver.
