I started out making earrings for myself somewhere around 1983. Ten years later I graduated from Rhode Island School of Design with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Jewelry and Metalsmithing.
I am drawn to creativity that uses both halves of the brain. I enjoy the engineering challenge of a jewelry piece combined with the beauty of an exceptional bead or stone. My jewelry is primarily fabricated directly in metal, with works ranging from simple, everyday pieces to more elaborate, “goin’ out” pieces.
I also enjoy working with clients to make their vision a reality. I am fluent in “thingy” and “whatsit”, and can translate a variety of ideas into a finished product.
When I’m not in the studio, I can be found at Ascension Martial Arts, practicing and teaching kung fu, doing yoga, singing with Black Sunday Roadshow,and doing voice work with Coffee Contrails. I hope you enjoy what you see here. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
