On my first jewelry class I was told that the only way to learn to make jewelry was to spend hundreds of hours on the bench working.
I dived in without really knowing at the time that it would become such a personal practice which truly changed my life, jewelry has given me freedom and it has taught me self determination, I can say that me and my work go hand in hand.
All those hours in the bench became a meditative practice where as the hands move,ideas become tangible, somehow questions are answered, there is growth through making and experiencing how different materials can be transformed.
Today I move around striving to learn more each day, I aim to create jewelry that is not merely adornment but that speaks for itself, a unique object with a spirit that when worn communicates and forms parts of your story.
