San Diego, USA
My passion for jewelry fabricating began in high school. While studying Applied Arts at SDSU, I took a semester with Arline Fisch and she introduced me to miniature nuts and bolts. Years later, I remained fascinated with their possibilities for pressure setting gemstones. In 1999,I developed a collection using their function and my engineered designs cut out by water-jet, also suggested by Fisch.
Over the years, my work has remained modern yet it has evolved with more fabricated designs and custom cut gemstones. I receive my best inspiration from fashion, architecture, nature, and most significantly, my friends and customers. My devotion is to design innovative jewelry that feels innately familiar yet artistically progressive.
