Each piece is hand crafted by me in my little home studio. I like to use clean lines and a modern aesthetic to allow natural stone beauties shine, but never say never! I find different inspirations all the time! I like polished cabochons, raw geode's, and stalactite slices.
I love making polar opposites when it comes to rings, both large statement pieces and delicate little rings appeal to me. I suppose this is partially due to my daily life, sometimes a statement ring with a big stone isn't practical when it comes to working in the lab and wearing gloves!
I love incorporating bursts of color into my earrings using stones or coral, but I also love a sleek modern design made simply of silver. I also make staple pieces, like little bud earrings made of recycled silver scraps which can be worn with practically any outfit.
Until recently I haven't made many cuffs. Occasionally I like to make a statement piece which features either an interesting shaped stone, a beautiful patterned stone, or stone with a pop of color. This year I hope to produce 'classic' bangle cuffs that can be worn individually or stacked but that have a bit of textural or shape interest.
Setting stones and making unique pieces is certainly a signature of my work, but I also love to play with simple necklaces, be it inspired by geometry or balanced asymmetry using beautiful stones. My designs are sometimes playful, and sometimes quite subdued. Experimenting allows me to find and refine my voice as a designer.
