Artist statement

These collections explore my fascination with finding the balance in the juxtaposition of two opposing elements; the hard and soft, the industrial and organic, the ability for life to emerge in a concrete wasteland, for laughter to accompany tears. Metals embellished with softened surface textures and accents give an insight into the play on the duality that exists in life and among the objects and environment that surround us. Mixed textures, colors, and materials layer these pieces sewing the fabric of a story together. This balance between the gritty and the enchanting, gives my jewelry a signature look that is unmistakably elegance with an edge.
