Metal and Minerals have always been used as adornments upon the human figure since the earliest days upon this Earth. I became aware of the awe that these two earthly elements produce at an early age through my grandfather's amethyst collection. Growing up in the Midwest and then transplanting to the Desert, I have been heavily influenced by the world around and the beauty jewelry can bring not only in a physical sense but mental as well. I strive to convey a colorful harmony between different minerals and gems with a complexity of design in metal.
I Graduated with a BFA in Metals in 2011, mainly focusing on jewelry though fabrication, enamel and casting. After graduation, refined my trade by working in a high-end jewelry manufacturing company. I continue to grow and challenge myself though design, technique and craftsmanship on a recurring basis.
