As an artist, I discovered my passion of working with natural media such as metal, wood, shells, glass and semi-precious stones. In my Exotic Wood and Silver Jewelry Collection, working with reclaimed wood and high quality silver allows my creativity to integrate these two fine materials. Very often, wood inspires me as to the shape of the corresponding silver component. I strive to create symmetry with wood and metal, focusing on the subtleties of wood such as color, grain, shape. I enjoy creating unique designs which empower people who wear the pieces.
