I create playful and elegant jewelry designs that engage the kinetic, three-dimensional, and temporal aspects of the body. My work echoes those physical elements using mechanical language. Through materials and construction methods used in unexpected ways, my frankly constructed pieces tell a story about human adornment.
Springs, washers, rivets, and tubing come together in my collection to reference industrial forms and materials. I use silver, brass, and titanium—as well as wood and plastic—to explore how materials can behave in surprising ways, especially as I apply craft techniques from diverse disciplines including printmaking, woodworking, and bookbinding.
