"My approach to making jewelry is an artisanal crafting of one of a kind or small edition pieces with an emphasis on series that relate to each other, and grow from one to the next. I hand-carve raw materials such as amber, quartz and semi-precious stones, then create the jewelry with gold and these carved pieces. Translating an idea into form always surprises me. My goal in making is to create a calm, quiet beauty, inspired by the natural world but organized into an essence of the form I make. I’m curious to discover over time the subtleties of both material and form. Some carved pieces take me many weeks to complete. The intensity of working with the materials becomes a meditation for me, an endless loop of discover.”
