Statement

My jewelry is an exploration of ornament and structure inspired by the exuberant, stylized decoration of Gothic architecture, illuminated manuscripts and 19th century engineering. By combining these forms and patterns, with my love of symmetry and tessellation, I re-interpret grand, structural elements and decorative details into wearable jewelry.
My one-of-a-kind narrative pieces are three dimensional illustrations; illustration was my first love
 
 
as an art student. These pieces are inspired by personal stories and the minutiae of domestic life.
