These bracelets, while seemingly simple in their design, represent a world of exploration for me. I am innately connected to the past by my work. I seek to create pieces that link the modern world to the distant past.
For me jewelry is not just about adornment, but also storytelling. I strive to help the wearer find a story within every piece that I make.

I am a natural born collector. As a small child I gathered pebbles, shells, feathers, bits of glass or anything my young imagination could make into a relic from the distant past. At the same time, making things with our hands was simply something that we did in my family. I can’t imagine living my life any other way.
