Giving Hands

Artist bio: I’m a self-taught jeweler with an art background. I studied film and illustration in art school and only came to sculpture and jewelry accidentally later on.

I’m a slow designer. Part of my process is to walk away for a while and let the time in between kind of erase what I think I’ve done so I can see the piece for what it is. Then I know what to do next. Engaging like this with the piece as I make it is the way I develop its “story”. I’ve had stones tell me what to do, but I think the design and the metal need this nurturing process to bring out their stories.

So I’m building stories through my working process. They are stories I hope will continue with the wearer because it’s vital that the wearer is part of the conversation. The piece isn’t complete until then. I love seeing my pieces on someone else. They are so different. They’ve been embellished.
