Biography:

My work examines interactions between the body and ornamentation of the body. I use metalsmithing techniques of chasing and repoussé to create sculptural forms in fine silver and gold that encircles necks, arms, and ears.

The plant series of leaf and flower forms are based on botanical specimens significant in the history of ornamentation. However, instead of using these symbolically rich botanicals in miniature, as the basis of ornamenting a traditional form of jewelry, I have developed a life size form for my pieces firstly, from the plant itself - the original source of the centuries old ornamentation - and secondly, from the shape it necessarily must take as a piece worn on the human body.
