About the Artist
The jewellery I create combines my deep love of beauty and history. In selecting the various elements that I bring together in a necklace, bracelet or belt buckle I'm also choosing to connect and incorporate ancient and unusual materials from around the world. I love the challenge of designing something around an unusual stone, bead, button or found object. I have studied Hopi and Navajo silver smithing techniques and I bring that experience to the pieces I create. My work reflects my upbringing in the Southwestern United States as well as my travels in Mexico and Guatemala.
The stone guides my fabrication because I want the silver and stone to be in harmony. Many pieces are set from the back, some are prong set. I love texturing the silver by cutting, adding overlay or fusing silver dust on the top surface.
My work is irregular, asymmetrical and happily still evolving.
