It starts with the stone—seen in the dream and warmed by the earth,rough to the touch and cold to the cheek, molded and mounted, framed and fraught. We rise with the vision, enter the fray. Where metal makes material, becomes the shape and season. Our dark lets in our light. Impulse rules with intuition. Around our necks, on our fingers, against our skin. The tension reveals truth that reality obscures. Our singularity expressed, emotions untamed. RAREFIED RARITIES. TRUTH IN FRICTION. ART OF SOUL — WORN AND ADORNED.
The Mind of the Artist. The Hands of Artisans.
We make our fine art jewelry rough and ready-to-wear.

I mix organic forms and straig ht conflicting lines, using different textures for coating silver to resemble the textures I see in the ore, in the wild stones’ natural habitat.

I love to create dramatic, theatrical statement pieces to remind us of our boldness and our courage to be different.
I’d had a very difficult time, being on the border between life and death due to serious illness and the need to transplant an organ. I planned my own funeral. I felt very isolated during the darkest days of that period in my life, but continued to work. There was a cockroach that desired never to leave my working table and he gave me company. Strangely, he inspired the hope in me that I would live and prosper. Cockroaches are the most indestructible creatures on Earth. Ever since then, I have deemed the cockroach and his qualities my true talisman
