Artist Statement

I enjoy mixing geometric and organic forms alongside industrial elements to create unique and wearable jewelry. I use wire to create patterns and add depth, and forging and texturing techniques to move the metal into these forms. Design elements, patterns, systems, numbers, and repetition, are what inspire my jewelry designs. My goal is to create jewelry pieces that make the wearer feel funky and unique, yet have the craftsmanship and timelessness that will allow every piece to be worn for many years.
