"My approach to jewelry making and design is informed by my architectural training."
Modernist movements such as the Bauhaus School, Russian Avant-Garde art, and mid-20th-century design aesthetics are my main inspirations. My goal is to achieve harmony in modular repetitions and variations on geometric forms. Primarily self-taught, I avoid traditional stone setting techniques and connections. My work is recognized by its unique method of capturing stones within metal frames creating negative space as an integral part of the composition. The use of thin wires to hold the elements together is another non-traditional technique allowing for movement and structural flexibility. A combination of unique materials and methods results in a joyful piece of wearable art. All the work is handmade in Brooklyn using sterling silver, 18k gold bimetal, and semi-precious stones and minerals.
