Q&A With This Artist
A: I work predominately metals included sterling silver, brass, gold, and copper. I source most of my metals from a company in New Mexico. I've incorporated photos into my metal design as well as shattered glass. My designs are spirit based and are created by collection. Each collection has a story that is translated into wearable designs. The process of creating my work happens in three phases. First I cultivate a story or a concept. Then I begin designing around that concept. The design process includes drawing and metal work. The final step is to produce the designs. The production process often includes casting and hand fabrication.
A: There is a duality to working with metal that I love. Metal when heated at a high enough temperature, can go from liquid to rock hard. It's beautiful, God-made and natural. Metal has a lifetime longer than the one I'm living. Working with metal feels like creating a legacy. I hope that my jewelry designs and the stories that inspired them are pass down through generations.
A: Creating music with Konjur Collective, a free jazz group I perform with, spending time with my family, friends and yoga.
