My desire as an artist is to create distinct jewelry that is comfortable, unique and timeless. Jewelry that makes a statement with simple, clean lines. Beautiful and bold. Industrial and organic. Modern and old world.

A signature element of my work are my own handmade ceramic stones that are cut, formed and kiln fired from a slab of clay. Whether the focus is ceramic, gemstone or pearl, I create one of a kind, modern, sculptural jewelry that is wearable art.
