My passion for making jewelry lies in working with metal. It has ties to the earth and natural elements that I find appealing.
I hand carve designs from recycled copper or brass sheets with a jeweler’s saw. Once I have refined the shape, I etch in details using a chemical reaction. I then use a mixture of metal inks and watercolors to paint the designs before sealing. I finish each pendant with unique chains and beads to complete the composition of wearable art jewelry. Each piece is a labor of love and truly one-of a kind.
