I love to combine unusual objects with precious ones. This piece features an aquamarine set on a buffalo horn. It is attached to a Sterling silver base. Texture is also important to me. Exploring a piece with your fingers should be as important as tasting it with your eyes. Each piece I make is unique and serves as a form of communication between the wearer and the people around them. We all have something we want the world to know about us, and jewelry helps us express it.
Jewelry is really a miniature form of sculpture. Working with unusual and found objects makes construction an interesting challenge. I learn something new from each piece I make. I delight in the experience of creation! This joy is channeled to the person wearing my pieces.
