PRODUCT STORY
Before taking classes in metals and jewelry construction I studied furniture design; two design paths I feel share many similarities. The influences of both can be found in the jewelry collection today. Each discipline requires an acute attention to detail and structure, but, more importantly, a focus on form and function.

Learning the principles of form following function inspires the shape and structure of every new jewelry piece I design. When creating each new piece, I know that it is important for the jewelry to not only be beautiful, but also comfortable, unfussy, and feel fantastic to wear.

I believe jewelry is everyone's opportunity to add details to their exterior in order to express their inner, personal style. Whether deciding to add one piece for subtle charm, or layer them for an edgier expression, my intention is for the jewelry to reflect flawlessly one's natural style.

Expensive but I am a sucker for wood, which if comfortable. These also look like the could be put on a different chain if needed.

I like the combo of wood and silver, and like the pendant design, but would switch out the chain. A little spendy, but still a thumbs up.

The design is indeed simple and elegant but I wouldn't pay that much for that necklace.

I do like this...love wood anything really, especially when crafted right. Yet I will comment on the price...a little too high.
