I'm a jewelry designer and metalsmith creating wearable works of art with modern simplicity.   I consciously disregard the traditional, yet originality and quality craftsmanship are important to me.  


Inspired by the irregular yet perfect shapes in nature, I create handmade, custom jewelry in my sun-drenched studio.  Designs are hand-fabricated in metals before adding bits of color from carefully selected gemstones. Each piece is finished with an intended patina that will only grow more beautiful with wear and over time. 


Every piece is handcrafted by me.  I use carefully selected raw materials so no two are exactly alike.  Most designs are one-of-a-kind or created in limited edition.  


I attended a technical jewelry design school in Florence, Italy and also studied with an internationally published master jeweler in Pennabilli, Italy.  My education continues at every chance.  I love this life.  I love what I do. 

I hope you will find something that speaks to you and that you just can’t live without.
