I am a fabricator employing traditional metalsmithing techniques such as stone-setting, forging, roll-printing and Keum-boo (gold foil diffused over silver). I use sterling silver, argentium silver and gold in my pieces, blending oxidized sterling silver with shiny silver & gold to create pronounced contrasts. I add precious and semi-precious stones for accent.
