Paying homage to the minimalist design and bold colors of my 1960’s-70’s youth, my collection reflects a love of mid-century design, art and architecture: Symmetric but soft shapes, clean lines, subtle details; statement pieces without the “fuss.” I create jewelry that marries an old world air with a modern flair. An admitted, committed colored stone junkie, I fall in love with a gem and work backwards to create something that makes the centerpiece appear as though it was born there. Reliance on warm gold alloys and a satin finish in order to highlight the gems rather than the metal allows those stones to take center stage. In many cases, the resulting pieces are one-of-a-kind.
Inspired by modernist structures and sculpture, I play with layers, negative space, movement, and dimension to create pieces that look different when observed from varying angles; and they often have unexpected, surprise elements. My favorite pieces to design are rings: Whether an unusual engagement ring, a collection of stackers, or a single gemmy ring, rings are pieces the wearer can admire on her own, without looking in the mirror. As a jewelry artist, I am dedicated to uncompromising gemstone quality and expert craftsmanship of the finished product. My attention to detail is evident in the work.
