A Story in Gold and Stone

Artist bio: My background is in painting but from the time I cast a silver ring in high school art class I was stuck on jewelry making. I eventually studied at The 92nd St Y in NYC. All along my painting background has remained a strong influence on my jewelry. I regard what I do as much art as craft. I love the idea that you can make a piece and make the wearer of that piece become part of the jewelry as an art form. It is wonderful that you can create something that can express an idea or point of view but is also something that can make a person feel special when wearing it. Jewelry conveys so many different things. I can think of few art forms exactly like it in this way.
I make pieces that explore conflict by juxtaposing opposite forms, textures and materials I often look for beauty in what is considered ugly, whether it is trash in the street or fungus in the woods. I am inspired by all of this, but my ultimate goal is to create something that brings joy
