My work reflects an attention to detail, combining contrasting textures with bold shapes. My inspiration thrives on repetition and geometric form while creating an unconventional, eco-chic style. Each piece is carefully hand fabricated from start to finish using sustainable raw precious metals. I create designs that combine the relationship between contemporary and mid-century modern design, with a focus on simplicity and everyday adornment. Designing jewelry is a passion and a way to express my creativity through visual storytelling.
