Metalwork & Lapidary
Each of my one-of-a-kind jewelry artwork is meticulously crafted from sterling silver sheet metal, formed and soldered. Then I cut precious gemstones from natural rock crystal and set them individually into bezel settings, building up the piece in stages to make the complete work of art you see.
Being able to shape my own stones and manipulate silver allows me great freedom to solidify an idea into reality.
My amethyst pieces celebrate the crystal formation and natural hue of this quartz that emerged from deep within the ground.
Silversmithing and lapidary can be painstaking processes, however, it satisfies me to hold up an artwork and say, This is what I was imagining and trying to describe to you.
