Jewelry has an ancient rich history - I love that! My jewelry blends tribal elements and contemporary design sensibilities, sometimes in the same piece; sometimes I give them their own voice. I love the ancient, the ethnic, the worn pieces I incorporate. Natural elements and textures surround me in life and in art. There's a story in everything, and I hope everyone who wears my jewelry will add their own chapter to that story.

The silks are just plain fun to create. I have a love of color and textiles and fabric and have been a weaver. The abstract silk painting gives me an opportunity to be a bit more "wild" and unstructured than usual!
