As someone who very much enjoys making sculptures, I wanted that aspect to translate to the jewelry that I make as well.  I model each piece individually by hand before I cast them so that no two are exactly alike.  This makes them more personal to you when you choose the one you want.  

These primitive looking neck pieces incorporate aesthetic elements of metal casting methods used around the world and over thousands of years.  They will continue to patina naturally over time.  They are full of intentional "imperfections," such as finger prints and saw marks, that allow the process of making to be embraced instead of hidden.  They are for treasure hunters, adventurers, and people who enjoy getting their hands dirty.

 

Send me a message if you are interested in purchasing or seeing more one of a kind jewelry.

It's true.  I've been infected with the travel bug.  The more I see of the world the more I want to experience.  And the more I want to share it.  I try to capture the feeling of a place with the individual photos, and as much of the whole story with the series.  This is the best way I know how to stuff you into my backpack and take you with me.

 

Send me a message if you'd like to purchase an unlisted size or image, or to request a photo shoot.

SCULPTURES


SCULPTURES


SCULPTURES


Metal has a particular enchantment to it; its richness, its history, its aggressiveness, its versatility, and its temperament.  I'm inspired by the traditions behind casting and the vast range of methods used across the world and throughout time.

I began casting in 2006 which coincided with the first time in my life that I had not been a dancer in over a decade.  I was just as interested in the process of casting as I was in the end result since it seemed to be a very carefully choreographed dance with fire, a variety of people of various skills and backgrounds, and thousands of years of history and traditions. 

Any form of art allows and demands constant learning and growing. With casting there is always more to learn and new methods to explore and also invent.  Metal is the material that most intrigues me and I feel equally challenged and at peace by manipulating it. It requires an abundance of patience and concentration that I am unable to maintain in most other aspects of my life.

Now my pieces are seen as being directly influenced by the body in movement.  I am exploring the ability of combining ancient knowledge, patience, physical labor, and parts of myself to transform a confrontational and unyielding material into a beautiful, often feminine, piece of work that brings the illusion of movement to a static piece.
