All pieces are hand-fabricated from sterling silver or gold. I often texture and oxidize my work to bring out its delicate details and sculptural dimensionality. Some pieces have riveted joints or moving parts, and many can be layered together to create a wearable narrative. Drawing inspiration from the unexpected beauty and sense of impending loss that can be encountered in the collision of the industrial and natural worlds, I often explores images of a fading American mythology. My work, which can stir unique individual associations, also tends to point to our essential connectedness and a certain shared experience of the world.
