Artist Statement

"My current body of work has been inspired by extensive exotic travel and experimentation with unique semi-precious beads and findings collected from my ongoing travels.   My jewelry designs represent a strong sense of color and a confluence of multiple cultures - often inserted with hand-painted and metal leafed beads. The end results are unique one-of-a-kind necklaces."
