about me

Crafted with care, passion and the Spirit of the mountains...

I have been interested in art and jewelry ever since I was little. I grew up in Fort Wayne, Indiana and originally went to college there for mechanical engineering and took metalsmithing classes as a hobby. I was an engineer throughout college and for two years after graduation. In 1999, I decided instead to follow my passion for creating jewelry and my longing for the mountains. I packed up my car with all my metalsmithing tools, whatever else would fit and headed West! I have been self-employed as a goldsmith and silversmith ever since. I have always been influenced by the beauty of the natural world in which I have called home. I lived in the magical mountains of Colorado for ten years and then the mystical mesas of Santa Fe for five years. I recently moved back to the land of my ancestors in the lush, green, water-kissed Appalachian Mountains near Asheville, NC. I peacefully create jewelry out of my home studio.

I am continually inspired by our Mother Earth and the natural art that surrounds us all. I feel passionately compelled to put as much meaning as possible into my work... to gratify Spirit and to hopefully inspire others to become more of who they are! Experiences along life’s journey help to evolve my work and how I live. I also embrace creating custom work. I strive to put my heart and soul into what I create and I enjoy sharing it with others through silver and gold.

Each piece I create is one-of-a-kind and unique. I fabricate the components by hand out of silver sheet and wire of different gauges, some with 14K gold accents. The broken arrow is the Native American symbol for "peace," and I sign it on all of my work when possible. The jewelry can be safely cleaned with a soft toothbrush and Wright's silver polish paste (found in most grocery stores). The sponge that comes with the paste works nicely too. Just be sure to rinse the piece thoroughly when done. A polishing cloth adds shine as well. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns!

Good things come in purple boxes and silver satchels!

My work is packaged with care in either a purple box or a silver satchel.
