I’ve been obsessed with rocks for as long as I can remember. When I was a small child, I would spend hours sifting through my neighbor’s gravel on the way home from the bus stop, pocketing anything that remotely resembled a crystal. I’m basically still doing the same thing today, just with more expensive taste. Thankfully through classes, community, and exploration I now have a skill that allows me to house these precious specimens in silver and gold. I love rustic finishes and dark patina. I strive to create original pieces that possess a playful but sophisticated esthetic while retaining multi-generational appeal. My greatest inspiration is the natural world, for Mother Earth’s art cannot be outdone.
