My primary material is non-ferrous metals - copper, silver and brass. I hand fabricate sculptural forms starting with sheet metal, cutting patterns and forming them over steel stakes and mandrels. The application of color is primary to my practice and I use industrial methods including powder coat, a heat-treated paint, and enamel, glass. Movement and an overall comfortable fit on the body is of priority when creating each jewelry piece. Close attention is paid to how the the lines of each piece will collaborate with the human form.
