About The Artist

Jewelry • WHOLESALE AVAILABLE • CUSTOM COMMISSIONS
I’ve always loved to design and to create with my hands, expressing myself with a variety of materials. Combining colorful shards of glass, sterling silver, mother of pearl and resin using improvised processes as well as traditional silversmithing techniques, I hand fabricate distinctive fine jewelry in my Thornwood, NY studio.
Q&A with the Artist
Tell us how your work is made.
I have several lines of work, but for my signature line I hand fabricate sterling silver bezels, cut glass tiles, tubes and rods and position the glass with organic silver shapes I’ve made into each bezel until I am pleased with the composition. Then I mix a two-part resin in the desired color and carefully pour it into the bezel until it is almost overflowing. The resin is heated lightly and then cures overnight. The next step involves grinding down the piece on a lap wheel, from coarser to finer grit to expose the design embedded within. (Very exciting!) Then each piece goes through a final finishing process.
