"I like the idea of craftsmanship that has been a part of every culture.  Jewelry as personal adornment is as old as mankind.  As with all things, I draw from the past but work very much in the present offering you an elegant, fun contemporary look... a BIG bold look... jewelry that is appropriate for casual as well as more formal wear.

My work satisfies a needed realization of expression, a commitment and unstoppable desire to be involved in jewelry as art and as a career.  It is an essential part of who I am.

I attended Chaminade College of Honolulu where, although my major was Mathematics, my artistic interests went from drawing....  to clay....  and finally to metals.  I have tried to keep my work fresh by attending concentrated metals/jewelry workshops adding new techniques to my "design bag".

I am a member of Florida Craftsmen, Ohio Designer Craftsmen and TACA".
