I create my work so that it beautiful, but still functional and fun to wear. Many of my designs are in Argentium Silver® so they are lightweight and easy to care for with minimal effort. I am a member of the British Argentium Guild, so all my pieces are hallmarked. Argentium is hypoallergenic, tarnish free and made from recycled silver. I also work in Keum Boo, an ancient silversmithing technique that fuses 24 carat gold to Argentium. I also use fold forming, a completely new way of forming sheet metal quickly into wonderful architectural 3-D shapes and textures.
I believe each day is an opportunity to celebrate creative expression and jewelry making does that using the canvas of our bodies. It is thrilling to create or wear a jewelry art piece that inspires inspection, questions and pleasure. The expression of each wearer is a statement of their personal style and individuality, and I am honored when my jewelry becomes a part of this collaboration.
