“You choose your own path. Not with fanfare but with conviction. You do not make apologies but celebrate your individuality. You remain true to yourself while quietly breaking the rules.”
From classical cellist to graphic artist to metalsmith and jewelry designer, it has always been about making with my hands. I handcraft each piece in my Western Massachusetts studio, finding inspiration in the naturally imperfect world. I embrace the organic process of letting a piece take its shape as it is being made and try to find a balance between thoughtful and spontaneous design.
Each gemstone is carefully hand-selected and combined with the highest quality Argentium silver, 22K and 18K gold. The viewer is drawn in by deceptively simple lines, geometric forms and a vibrant color palette, only to discover the wonderfully seductive textural idiosyncrasies found in each individual piece of jewelry.
