Through my work, I explore aspects of creation and the subjective nature of our relationship with reality through symbolism, geometry and form. I am interested in the recurring geometries in nature as a metaphor for the act of creation.
My kinetic work uses the interaction with the body as a metaphor for active participation in the process of growth.
I use a variety of traditional and contemporary techniques to create my jewelry. Most of my pieces are either in part or entirely designed on the computer using 3-D modeling software and are cast using the lost wax process with dates more than five thousand years. I also hand finish all of my pieces. I frequently include style elements that allude to antique jewelry. This fusion of the antique and contemporary, handmade and machine made, echo the dichotomies we are all faced with every day.
