I’ve always been fascinated with the feel and appearance of surfaces. The world is filled with texture; from ocean-side seaweed to the contours of farmland; from vegetable bags to Christmas ribbons. I use this “texture library” to create new patterns in metal. But texture alone is not sufficient. Each piece must be given a shape and form that creates a unique dimension of its own.
Most of my pieces use sterling silver and karat gold to add another visual texture. I use a new alloy of sterling silver, Argentium©, that minimizes hazardous processes and is certified to be produced from recycled silver. Additionally, the tarnish resistant properties of Argentium© reduces future use of harsh cleaning chemicals and ensures that my creations will look as intended longer.
