jewelery design - metalsmith
really big rings and random bits to hang off a choker. a good, well placed word. designing tends to work between finding a resonance in the sometimes rigid process of jewelry making and a playful outlook on life. there are moving parts, or surprises or a tongue-in-cheek (obnoxious?) flamboyance, but mostly a real love of adornment and expression.
everything is hand fabricated -- mostly from sterling silver and semiprecious stones -- or from found objects such as pebbles, bits of wood and old coins. jewels, drawing and sculpture are adored and colliding in our studio.
