I started making wood jewelry in 2013. My first piece was a hand carved tulip brooch design, which took six months to finish. I soon discovered how to up-cycle materials to produce finished pieces much faster. As I continued making jewelry, I used my Industrial Design background from Rhode Island School of Design (1999) to enhance my metal working experience to include gold, gemstones and various metals.
All of my designs are inspired by nature, texture, pattern and shape.
