I began to explore jewelry making in 2010 and graduated from the Jewelry Design Program at Lasalle College in 2017. I have a studio at my home and my work is primarily marketed locally. Inspired by the textures and colours found in nature, this piece evolved from fusing crinkled layers of silver to a silver base which was then cut and formed before final details were added. I applied some 14k gold elements and framed the broach in brass wire. The pearl symbolizes our radiant sun partially encircled by a disappearing moon.
As a piece evolves, I feel a connection to the materials which helps to guide me to a final outcome. I hope my jewellery gives as much pleasure to the customer as it did to me during the creative process.
