I create unique hand fabricated Jewelry from Silver, Gold, colorful stones, fossils, crystals + coins. Inspirations for my art flow from many sources : some of these include nature, geometry, ancient symbols, architecture, and human anatomy + movement. All my jewelry is handfabricated w/ torches and hand tools using the timeless art of metalsmithing + a variety of techniques in the process. Great attention, detail, precision, and quality materials are combined to create these pieces of wearable art. My intention is that these pieces bring joy, beauty, and positive energy to the wearer.
