I have been inspired in my work by vintage jewelry, puzzles and games, nature, art, and places where I have lived and traveled. I love working with metal, and enjoy many of the traditional metal working techniques, but I do not shun modern methods of working. I like to mix metals, and I incorporate vintage bakelite in some of my work. I strive for the best design and craftsmanship I am capable of in every piece of jewelry I make.
