Water is the basis of life and improves our quality of living merely by being in, on, or around it; this is the inspiration for my artwork.
Each one of a kind work is created entirely by hand, other than that which was created by nature. With a torch and hand tools, I infuse gemstones and sea glass into my contemporary coastal designs of fine and sterling silver and high karat gold. The gemstones reflect the lightness and darkness and blues and greens of water, as well as the life within it. The hand-textured, recycled precious metals and organic designs capture the water’s movements, whether it is a cascading waterfall, a rippling pond, a rushing river, or a crashing wave.
