artist statement

The jewelry I make is physically molded to my body and emotionally molded to my past. Jewelry connects to the wearer, the consumer very literally. This unique intimacy is what drew me to the art. Being both an artist and jeweler, my goal is to capture the essence of my day-to-day inspirations. 

My jewelry began as a means to identify what was considered beautiful by nature and project it specifically on humans to contrast society’s warped expectations of perfection. This was the specific purpose of my thesis collection Second Skin.

Overall, organic contours dominate my aesthetic because they allow for a subtle flow within each piece. Ideas are born spontaneously and then continuously refined until I have a product that satisfies the need for both comfort and beauty without compromising concept.
