Biography
Résumé

I make jewelry that has depth, volume and movement.  My passion is making small-scale wearable vessels, each one unique, that are worn as statement pieces and can hold something with special meaning to the wearer.  These vessels allow me to explore sculptural form, volume, surface texture, connecting mechanisms, movement and containment within the context and scale of jewelry.

I was trained at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), in Baltimore.  Since that time I have been making one-of-a-kind and  limited production, specifically amphora shaped pendants and pendant vessels.  I work out of my studio in Kensington, Maryland.  I welcome any and all visitors, questions, and fellow artists.
