CURRENT FEATURED ARTIST
My love and appreciation for ancient cultures are the inspiration for my jewelry. I have always admired the complex yet simple nature of the architecture, alphabets, and personal adornments of the people who inhabited these cultures. It amazes me that so many beautiful things were able to be created with the use of minimal tools and resources.
The original designs for my jewelry are drawn using pen and ink. The design is then copied onto a transfer paper, ironed onto sterling, copper or brass, then etched. This process can take between 2 -12 hours depending on which metal I use. Once etched, some of the pieces have a patina applied to give the illusion of age. Although the majority of my work is etching metal, I also design models to be cast in sterling silver for creating my jewelry.
