I work in Argentium Silver, Gold, heat colored Titanium and Copper sheet and wire to create Art Jewelry using traditional fabrication metalsmithing techniques. I saw, texture, hammer, and form the metal with hand tools. Sinusoidal stakes and hammers are used to create the organic feel and form of the jewelry. The directness of forging metal in this manner makes each piece of my jewelry unique. No two pieces of my jewelry are alike and each piece has a story to tell.
