The Design Process
The process and creation of each piece rests entirely in my hands from the sketch pad, to gem selection, to the finished piece and most pieces are one of a kind.
My designs are inspired by nature, and grounded in good relationships developed the world over. I take most of my inspiration from the things I see in nature - a sunset over the ocean, sunrise over the mountains, a unique new gem I find or the color in a stormy sky. These inspirations will guide my choice in gems and those gems will come together to tell a story in each piece I create!
I have developed relationships with a few select vendors that I value, and they help me find the best, high end materials to work with. I have spent years developing the skills and relationships that go into my work and each piece shows the fruits of those labors in its high quality and unique design. All of my gemstones are natural and generally untreated, and I only use solid gold, solid sterling or gold filled metals. You will not find lab created stones or plated metals in my work... ever! So rest assured you are getting a quality piece that will last a life time.
