Formally trained in Metalsmithing at the Miami Jewelry Institute an affiliation of University of Miami, I have been working in metals and gemstones since 1989. Trained as a Goldsmith I work in all precious metals and gemstones.
Offering a full collection of Neckpieces, Brooches, Pendants, Bracelets, Bangles and Earrings, my work has been widely embraced. My talent has presented itself in the recently published Lark Publishing 500 Collections and honored for my metalwork with award winning design, soldering and stone setting challenges. I now include gemstone beads, Lampwork beads, pearls and various other colorful components to complete my Collections.
My use of color is the most unique and unexpected making these combinations vibrant and completely compelling. My pieces are collected by those women that not only want to enhance their existing jewelry collections but make these one-of-a-kind pieces the prizes they are.
Above all training and expertise I consider myself a colorist and I create my craft every single day. And I would not have it any other way.
