The Calling

I grew up studying music and literature, worked in graphic design, and then discovered metalwork traveling through Western China, Tibet, Nepal and India. There, a Tibetan woman’s exquisitely sculpted earrings of coral, turquoise and gold whispered my name in luminous syllables.

The Work

I make my jewelry with traditional metalsmithing tools and techniques in a bright, welcoming workshop with care and presence. I work intuitively, enjoying the tactile, visual and energetic resonance of the materials. My recent work pairs hand bead-woven elements with gold, silver, and extraordinary gemstones – particularly natural druzies, sapphires and diamonds . .
