Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes.
Art is knowing which mistakes to keep.

This is all the permission I need to experiment with material, design, and process!

I’m a silversmith, Reiki Master, and rockhound, and these passions feed each other.

My pieces are made by hand, using Sterling Silver, Brass and Copper. I often include stones in my work, but will incorporate just about anything that strikes my fancy.

Everything I make is nickel free. I even make my own ear wires, so I can guarantee no nickel content.

The design is influenced by ancient symbols, geometry, and the natural world around me, giving them a timeless appeal.
