about me

meI have an MFA in Fibers and work part-time as a teaching artist in the Memphis community. I collected modernist silver jewelry for years, and was inspired to begin working with metal in 2007.

My mixed metal jewelry is fabricated using traditional silversmithing techniques such as sawing, piercing, etching, soldering, and forging. I use gems sparingly in my work, preferring the emphasis of form and space provided by different metals, textures, and patinas. I work with sterling silver, shibuichi, copper, brass, nickel silver, and gold. I use recycled metals whenever possible.
