Artist Statement:
Before I got into my current craft I was a screen printer and graphic designer. I fell in love with silversmithing in college and landed an internship with Michael Boyd. I’ve been happily working for Michael and myself for about 4 years now. I cut all of the stones in the ring from some of my favorite materials. The Rutile is a Brazilian stone and the Jade is from the Edwards mine in Wyoming that was mined out years ago making it a very rare stone.
