One can get lost looking into the shimmering, textured valleys of my metal adornments.
I am a New Orleans native, contemporary metal jewelry artist that uses traditional
metalsmithing techniques to create edgy, one of a kind designs. I use
primarily silver in my works, but I also incorporate contrast in my
pieces by mixing metals, using patinas, and incorporating unique cuts
and intense color of precious and semiprecious stones. I pull
inspiration from both organic and geometric forms. Colors and textures I
find in nature are a constant source of stimulation for my designing
process. I hand fabricate all of my pieces using metalsmithing
techniques such as soldering, reticulation, fold forming, etching,
keum-boo, and cloisonné enameling. My intent in creating my work is for
the wearer to develop a personal connection with their piece, and to
walk through life feeling confident and fearless.
Adorn yourself in confidence, by wearing handmade jewelry that moves you forward.
I design and handcraft jewelry in my studio in New Orleans.
