As a second generation jeweler continuing a 48 year family business I offer something for everyone: the impulse buyer looking for quality crafted jewelry at an affordable price; the refined patron looking to add something elegant & special to their fine jewelry collection; & the epicurean collector looking for a totally unique statement piece of art jewelry.
In crafting both my artworks and my business I am moved to explore the deeper meaning within the very materials I employ. My focus is the counterpoint between found objects (driftwood, beach rock, and sea glass) with more "precious" (ethically sourced) materials, such as FAIRMINED gold and silver, fair-trade sapphires and recycled diamonds, to redefine what it is we consider to be truly precious.s.
