The Art of Metalsmithing


Artist Statement



I have been a metalsmith artist creating wearable art since 1983.
The passion began as an avocation while living and working in New York City, a city of striking contrasts.  Inspiring me to create, using nature and metal as a medium, I discovered it to be a natural gift. This creative passion guided me to study various metalsmithing techniques over the course of my career in order to enhance my skills and to further exploration.





Metal Fabrication -

The creative process involves taking the raw materials of precious metal sheet and wire and semi-precious stones and creating works that reflect contrast; soft embracing hard, finished and polished with the raw and uncut - always in balance in the final piece.

The beauty of each natural part speaks of how it will be transformed into wearable art.
