Artist Statement

I am a self taught metalsmith who works primarily in silver and gold.  My pieces are created from scratch utilizing traditional metalsmithing techniques such as: design, sawing, forming, fabricating, soldering, sanding, polishing, and stone setting.  The stones and objects I use in my jewellery are hand sourced from various places all over the world.  All seaglass is hand picked by myself. I strive diligently to source my stones from responsible and ethical lapidary artists while encouraging small, family owned businesses.  Each piece is made from hand by me in my Santa Cruz studio or my 1965 Aristrocrat travel trailer while parked in nature.  Thank you for supporting my work.
