What makes your jewelry unique?

The combination of shapes, craftsmanship, experience and caring about each piece and it’s details.

Why is sustainability important to your art?

I have always been about recycling and reusing both in my jewelry and for the environment. I am annoyed by waste and by things that are not made to last. Why make something that is going to fall apart or has short term meaning?

What do you do to give back?

I clean up trash I find while walking, donate to help animals, and stop to say “hi” and chat with neighbors.

What do you hope your art inspires in others?

I hope people feel that they have something classically special and timeless. Maybe the piece reminds them what makes nature special and that brings them joy.
