I have always been very inspired by the work of ancient jewelry artists. The fine detail that was achieved nearly 5000 years ago is just amazing, some of which is very difficult to duplicate even today. Some of the techniques with which they worked, including granulation, chasing and repousse, and chainmaking have nearly become lost arts. Chasing and repousse is a sculpting technique which uses small, blunt tools and a hammer. The goal of my work is to help share the knowledge of these incredible skills and to do my small part to keep these traditional arts alive. Each of my pieces is entirely handmade primarily in sterling silver, often incorporating gold and diamond accents. I strive to incorporate these ancient techniques with unique, contemporary design to create jewelry for individuals seeking understated elegance and timeless fashion.
