Description of Work,
I work exclusively in 14k, 18k gold and platinum.
Most of my pieces feature exciting exotic gemstones of high quality such as Tanzanite, Diamonds, crystallized druzies, South Sea Island Pearls and one-of-a-kind hand cut gems and minerals never to be seen again!
Technique & Materials
I began my education with direct metal fabrication and when I realized I was limited in my ability to develop certain design concepts, I turned to wax model making and "lost wax" casting. I still incorporate fabrication in many of my cast pieces. I specialize in carving "one-of-a-kind" wax models to the specifications of my customers' gems and one of a kind pieces, which I am creating for my own line.
My work is bold and strong with clean angled lines. I place strong emphasis on timeless contemporary design. The gemstones I select are vibrant and beautiful, each being individually selected for clarity, color and fire. My work has been described as "architecturally and sculpturally" oriented. The highly polished finish reflects the beauty and color of the gemstones and of the surrounding environment.
