Abstract Marriage Copper & Silver Necklace



I make contemporary mixed metal jewelry using a unique design process.  By exploiting copper’s “dirty” trait through heat patination, I can use copper as a canvas.  The contrast between raw copper and the rich patinas is used to create silhouettes in the metal.  I lean towards simple shapes, clean lines and asymmetry to create balance.  The way in which design influences mood and evokes feelings fascinates me.  I hope that my feelings of ease and poise are translated into the piece for the wearer.  My jewelry will appeal to those who appreciate unique craftsmanship with timeless taste.
