Q&A with the Artist
Tell us how your work is made.
I make all of my jewelry myself. I have a hot and cold bench at my home studio, as well as a casting studio that I rent. All pieces that are images of nature are cast from real branches, leaves, moss, etc. and are cast to make a bronze positive. I make a mold and wax positives to cast each item individually. The lost wax process is only part of my process. I also fabricate my pieces, and most have both process in order to create a final piece.
