I’m a jewelry designer and metalsmith with the philosophy of creating wearable works of art with modern simplicity. While I consciously disregard the traditional, 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 fabricated in metal before adding bits of color from carefully selected gemstones. Each piece is finished with a patina that only grows more beautiful with wear and over time.
Every piece is handcrafted using individually 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 then 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 find something that speaks to you and you just can’t live without.
