Philosophy

Cultures have always had a strong relationship to jewelry and body adornment.  Families rich and poor historically have passed jewelry down through generations.  Unfortunately in today's world we have become obsessed with mass-produced "throw away" accessories and fashion.  

My work seeks to reclaim jewelry as meaningful by doing away with mass produced pieces and focusing on quality and craftsmanship.  Each item has been designed, fabricated, and hand finished by me in my Chicago studio.  

I hope you love wearing each piece as much as I love creating it!
