I believe jewelry is sculptural adornment-wearable art. It's a very personal expression of who you are. My inspiration comes primarily from classic ancient jewelry styles, many of which are timeless. What could be more classic than a hammered cuff, a pendant or a bold necklace! I prefer uncomplicated designs.  Since I am a graduate gemologist I love to work with unusual gemstones. I use only fair trade materials and recycled gold and silver. My work has been exhibited and sold in museum shops such as the Oriental Institute in Chicago, at the Santa Fe Opera Shop, and in various galleries in Santa Fe and throughout the Midwest.
