Artist Statement: I am intrigued by lines and how a slight change in a curve can transform a piece. For quite some time now the curve has been my favorite design element and some clients say it's my "signature style". A strong polish is something I tend to be a stickler about, but I am incorporating more texture and contrast in my work. I strive to create designs that are pleasant to look at, comfortable to wear and sturdy enough to withstand the lives we lead. My name is on the business as well as each piece of jewelry; I stand by my product.
