"My medium of choice has been precious metal since the first chance that I had to work with it. I enjoy the balance in fluidity and structure that it has, and how these qualities are mirrored in the handling of it. My designs are inspired by the natural world, and I often draw on details from my immediate surroundings, whether I am traveling in new environments, or enjoying the familiarity of my own garden. I hand fabricate each design, indulging in the details of process and fine craftsmanship from the first inkling of an idea, right through to the finished piece of jewelry."
