My aesthetic is both modern and timeless. Inspired by Etruscan jewelry and Greek artifacts as well as the clean, spare lines of contemporary architecture, I create one of a kind pieces that are substantial and balanced. The sensuality of gold - the way it feels in the hand and on the skin - has been a major consideration in my design aesthetic, so there's an abundance of it in my work. 

Each piece is fully hand-wrought using custom-alloyed 18k gold and carefully sourced fine gemstones. These methods are labor and time intensive, but the touch that hand-fabricating gives every aspect of a piece - each link of chain, bezel, and twist of wire - is the hallmark of my work.  This attention to detail results in heirloom quality pieces of jewelry. 

From feeling the initial spark of an idea, to being seduced by a particular stone, to coaxing form and wrestling metal, to the final polish, every aspect of my work has one goal - to create a unique piece of jewelry that will be both treasured and worn with delight.
