I have been making jewelry for the past 5-6 years and work mostly
with gold. I like making one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry, learning
new techniques as I go.

I am currently exploring acid and non-acid etching, photo-etching,
granulation & reticulation.

My works are contemplations, entertaining the idea that objects can
be both organic in form and relation as well as mechanical in a
functional format: adornment.

These contemplations materialize as wearable jewelry with a
sculptural presence. I strive to balance dichotomy:
organic/mechanical, inherent/industrial, expected/unpredictable,
variety/repetition, simple/complex. I create alliterations in metal
that possess a rhythmic quality in form. I find inspiration in the
artwork of Joan Miro,Alexander Calder, Pablo Picasso, and Fernand

I have been designing and creating jewelry since 1996. My studies
began with mechanical engineering before realizing that my interest
in “how things work” would be better satisfied in a more creatively
aesthetic mode–jewelry design and metalsmithing. I enjoy the
process of hand forging and fabrication and combine these processes
with innovative practices.

Each piece is individually handcrafted in my Colorado studio.
