A long held fascination for historical detail and architectural decoration can be seen echoed in my designs. Softly glowing silver, bronze and gold gilt
vessels and jewelry are warmed by velvety patinas and shimmering gemstones. A combination of lusciously malleable metal clay and traditional
metalsmithing techniques come together to construct whatever contours my designs demand. My little studiolo is an always changing cabinet of curiosity, populated by found objects, exotic photographs, and containers filled with colorful gems, antique buttons and otherwise forgotten objects that
help spark my creative imagination.
