Jewelry is the tool I use to delve into the mysteries of nature. I am ever intrigued and interested in the simple complexity of the natural world. The wonder of it feeds my imagination, life and work. Observing the sequential patterns in which flower petals grow and the way water ripples away from an object, I imagine their shape and progress, and envision a blueprint for a wearable piece which I capture in metal. To adorn the body with the simple mysteries of nature is like a talisman of the natural to help us remember, look close and not forget.
