I believe that jewelry is the ultimate form of wearable art.

As a graduate of California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and having a predilection for fashion, I have always been interested in the ways art and fashion collide and crossover -  specifically as it relates to jewelry and accessories.  The result is functional works of sculpture to adorn and be adored.  Seeking knowledge of ways to combine art and fashion I continued my education and received an Advanced Degree in Jewelry Design at Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM).

With ongoing study in both lapidary and metalsmithing, I continue to advance my goals of creating fashion forward, one of a kind, handmade jewelry. Using reclaimed costume jewelry, recycled gems, sustainably collected rocks and other neglected treasures I aim to breathe new life into each and every piece.

Re-wear the worn.  Re-tell the story.  Re-think the traditional.  Trends come and go, fashion transcends.  Art is wearable.
