Art You Can Wear

My wearable collections are just that - jewelry pieces that were created with the full intent of being worn. They need to be beautiful, comfortable, functional, and interesting because they are those special pieces that are
used to dress up an outfit, make one feel special, delight, and entertain. They are the pieces that get worn for a full day of work and a full night of play, and then get worn the next day as well.

I develop these pieces by first coming up with a design concept. In most cases the design concept tends to be a texture that I am able to create using one of many metalsmithing techniques. Based on that, I then begin
brainstorming different ways to pull the design concept into jewelry pieces that I would want to wear.

The results? Well, go though my different collections and see for yourself!

Castle Collection

Sterling Silver

Based off of the Castle Bracelet in my Use Your Imagination Collection, I create more wearable and less expensive castles that could be worn and played with.

Fused Collection

Sterling Silver

The Fused Collection centers around the technique of fusing- joining two pieces of metal without the use of solder. I create the texture by heating a sterling silver sheet with silver sawdust and bits on top of the sheet. The outer part of the metal will begin to melt and form a bond with each other called a eutectic bond. Each piece is a little different depending on how i scatter the dust and bits of silver.

Figure Collection

Sterling Silver

Your best friend can come with you everywhere you go! and they don't talk back. These pins are all posed a bit differently- use your imagination and find out what each one is doing.

Assorted Band Rings

Sterling Silver, Green Garnet

an assortment of rings: stippled texture, plain, and double layer stippled texture with a green garnet.

Vive la France Collection

The texture of the pieces is reminiscent of the look of porous limestone caves partially submerged in water. These caves are known as grottos.
