About

 
 

I create objects of beauty rooted in historical and personal relationships. I am fascinated by the traditional metalsmithing techniques of ancient civilizations. Filigree is a technique that spans many cultures across the world. The swirling patterns and tight fitting spirals demand intense focus and an eye of the intricate. I have blended the techniques and patterns of several disciplines to create my own style of filigree. This process along with chain making and raising feed my passion for elaborate and methodical designs. It is a labor of love and a passion for challenging the material and myself, to push boundaries in order to fabricate the large and complex pieces that I envision. These historic techniques are my inspiration for objects of adornment and sculpture.
