Homage to J.P Miller & M.L. Hu

I have always been drawn to water and have lived on a sailboat for part of my life. I am drawn to creating personal adornment from the forms of maritime vessels and the interaction of wind, waves and water. My work is made using traditional jewelry processes in tandem with computer aided design (CAD). I meticulously design my work in the computer, portions of which are then 3D printed. Each piece is hand dyed and finished with precious metal becoming wearable, whimsical ships and sea creatures.
