Jewelry is an intimate, personal art form worn directly on the skin. The art of my trade is in working closely with clients to develop and create pieces of lasting beauty to perfectly complement the individual’s own unique personality, style, and taste. In order to maintain consistently high quality design in my studio, best quality precious metals and gems from ethically recycled and new sources are always used, whenever available. All pieces are personally designed by me – this includes the fabrication and hand carving of wax models, which are then lost wax cast off-site. I also personally oversee all gem setting and hand-engraving of pieces, utilizing the highest quality ethically sourced gemstones available, which I hand select from a wide array of established and reputable gem dealers worldwide I have built relationships with over the past 2+ decades. For each project I begin by selecting beautifully balanced gemstones: vibrant color, well proportioned, excellent clarity (i.e. having the fewest inclusions and/or natural imperfections), and often rare and unusual cuts. Close attention is paid to every detail, seeking the perfect balance of beauty, structural performance, and lasting value.
