Artist Statement

Jewelry should exist on the body with an increasingly confident, intentional, complementary, and dynamic presence. by working with software technologies, as well as traditional jewelry fabrication methods, I am able to produce work that exemplifies those qualities to make one-of-a-kind statement pieces. My art explores concepts of reflection, introspection, and illusion. Although my work can appear dangerous, skillful craft and close attention to detail allow me to make comfortable and absolutely wearable works of art. The work, although finished, becomes a prototype or model for a new piece, or change version. Each piece leads to an idea for the next, and every idea expands and builds in an evolving and recursive process of creation.
