As a long-time talent agent, I promoted and fostered the artistry and talents of others, but was frustrated with the lack of a creative outlet for my own personal expression. This is when I discovered metalwork. Weaving metal perfectly marries my desire for beauty, cleanliness of design, control and simplicity. I am inspired by the raw beauty of metal, the strength that is inherent in its composition and its ability to be manipulated into alluring form. Weaving is an age-old technique that I have applied to make the most modern and contemporary jewelry designs. My work is hand-fabricated and hand-woven. Building upon a constructed framework, I weave with 22k gold, fine silver and other pure metals such as palladium and platinum.
