Statement
Résumé

My design practice is informed by modernism and minimalism and driven by material exploration. I utilize both traditional and contemporary designing and making skills to bring form to my artistic vision.

Instead of making works from found objects, every element of my jewelry has been designed and engineered from blank blueprints. All of my jewelry is comprised of multiple geometric elements and married into abstract modules that repeat in order to create an elaborate form. The design process then pushes the limitations and error range of the technology I am using to achieve a dynamic form composed of simple elements.
