Q&A with the Artist

Tell us how your work is made.

All jewelry is entirely hand crafted using traditional goldsmithing techniques in limited production collections. I am the only artisan that is creating each piece. I use Fairmined gold and recycled silver in my designs.

What makes you passionate about the medium you work with?

I am inspired by wildlife that is often unseen or underrepresented such as various insects, amphibians, and animals. I love to use rich gold alloys to celebrate the pricelessness of these lifeforms. I am excited to be using recycled and fair mined materials that support and encourage environmental responsibility for artisans and collectors alike.

What is something unique about you or your practice?

My pieces often move and come to life in unexpected ways, and are able to mold themselves to any individual.
