This piece was made by reusing hand-cut leaves with chasing detail from another project to frame a bezel-set ocean jasper cabochon. It is a favorite of mine because after a period of immense growth as a metalsmith, I relaxed and really felt a connection with the medium, composing a bold a colorful floral pendant from silver sheet.

Jewelry is a lifetime passion for me that began with dimensional beadwork and I just started learning metalsmithing in 2021; my style and repertoire has grown immensely since then. I find the most joy in learning and experimentation. My aesthetic is raw, elegant, playful and dramatic.
