I am endlessly grateful for the opportunities I have been given to learn and grow as an artist, and I intend for learning and teaching to continue on as visible pillars of my business and studio practice.

I’ve been collecting - hidden notes, quiet clues, choreography, idiosyncrasies, once useless and later useful bits. All of the above and more helped me to develop technique, predictions, fluidity, a discerning eye. More significantly, I developed the ability to communicate across a divide. A divide that every jeweler encounters upon bringing someone from the outside, a client with whom to collaborate, into their work. A divide of material luxury, not of humanity or knowledge or of the luxury of creating and celebrating meaning with another.
This guide is a gift, a foundation from which larger conversations can flow.
