As a lover of nature, I'm drawn to its rough yet refined beauty. Its ever-constant push and pull between texture and clean shapes, hard and soft, old and new, is what deeply influences the aesthetic of my jewelry. Like nature, I balance the contrast of these elements when designing each piece. I describe the collection as Ancient Chic because of this balance. Ancient for its primitive qualities and Chic for its tasteful charm. I primarily work in solid 18k gold, 14k vermeil, and Argentium silver ranging through large statement pieces to small dainty adornments.
