Artist Statement: Every time I create a new jewelry piece it is more about challenging myself and learning a new fabrication skill. Rarely, there is a deep meaning behind the design. However, looking at my finished cage ring I realized this is probably how we all have felt at some point in these past pandemic years.

Artist Bio: I am a self-taught silversmith. I started making jewelry about 13 years ago while I lived in Italy. Now I live in Cape Cod where I continue my passion of creating unique art jewelry.
