About the Artist

My interest in jewelry began as an obsessive fascination with the chemical formulas of gems and minerals and as a 13 year old I learned how to cut and carve those minerals by reading books and manuals. I majored in Geology and Theatre in college and worked as an apprentice and bench jeweler in multiple jewelry stores before earning my degree. After spending a few years working in jewelry stores and apprenticing under a master jeweler in Chicago, I went off on my own and began making my own work while also walking dogs to pay the rent. The custom jewelry and art festival sales allowed me to go full-time as an artist in 2010 and I opened my studio and showroom in Austin in 2014.

Artist Statement

My interest in jewelry began as an obsessive fascination with the chemical formulas of gems and minerals and as a 13 year old I learned how to cut and carve those minerals by reading books and manuals. My work is inspired by the patterns and textures resulting from the disintegration and formation of matter caused by natural forces, especially erosion and gravity. The ethical sourcing of the stones and metals used in my work is of utmost importance to me; inter-generational durability and comfort to the wearer are integral to my designs. I use handmade alloys and gemstones I cut from ethically-sourced rough and employ Mokumé Gane metal lamination, cast and fabricated gold, silver and palladium as well as lathed and forged iron-nickel meteorite, steel & titanium.
