I hand-make all of my pieces using traditional metalsmithing techniques and sometimes unconventional materials. I often have an impulse to give what I find on the beach to a friend. By transforming my collections into wearables, I create a secondary function to these objects. It excites me to share a piece of me by creating jewelry, it is the connection between maker and wearer that I enjoy. The process is always challenging as it differs depending on the one-of-a-kind piece.
