I usually begin by focusing my attention on the gemstone for which I want to design. As I begin to resonate with it… I listen…I get in touch with what I feel and how I think the stones want to be expressed…either in a ring, pendant, earrings, etc.
I try to get inside the mind of the person who will eventually wear my jewelry and get a sense of how they will relate to it. I get my inspiration from all different sources: art, nature, architecture, etc.
“My goal is to create well-composed pieces of jewelry which artistically might express or reveal an aspect of one’s self……..their personality, confidence, professionalism, sophistication, and sense of style, whether it be hip, western, chic, etc.”
