As a self taught jewelry artist, I am not bound by traditional rules.
I use hand fabrication and many of the techniques I employ are experimental. My materials are chosen with contrast in mind – I look for contrasts, empty contours and visible and imagined boundaries, which allows me to conceptualize the shape within.
My process is one of spontaneity of the form and the composition. I trust in the belief that imperfection is more interesting than perfection, and I let my imagination, innovation, and experimentation to guide me.
I thrive in an atmosphere of controlled chaos while allowing the materials to dictate the final outcome of my work.
Some might consider working without a plan as risky, but to me it is as natural as breathing.
