i am an object maker. i work out of need to give shape to my feelings and ground them in matter.
metal inspires my work as a material….. solid, hard, sometimes heavy. yet so soft, its flowing into liquid, the melting into a new form…my jewelrywork is a constant fascination with minimal shapes and movement, their relationship of color to metal into a continuing questioning of the wearable. i work mostly with sterling silver and copper, sometimes gold, fabricating shapes out of sheet metal and wire, manipulating the material with heat for a sensuous richness and to satisfy the longing for touching. i suggest possibilities, i invite the wearer to dare. subtly, i tease.
