ARTIST BIO


My jewelry designs are a playful reflection of nature's geometry; beauty that surrounds us everywhere, every day.


The dramatic landscape of coastal California has long inspired my lifestyle and aesthetic. Sweeping cliffs and sandy shores, tumbling waves and tangled kelp, smooth pebbles and seashells-- these elements become the stylized lines and forms that give shape to my work.


Each piece of jewelry is made in my San Francisco studio by hand, with sterling silver and high karat gold vermeil, using traditional metalsmithing techniques.  I try to keep my sources and methods simple and sustainable, so the process of making feels joyful and conscious.


I continually challenge myself to create work that is fresh and unexpected, yet easy to wear for any occasion.  I hope these pieces will become the favorites in the your jewelry box!
