To me, texture is what makes life interesting.
I’ve always been fascinated by natural architecture. As a child, throughout the day I would feel the intricate surfaces of rocks and twigs in my pockets that I had collected.
Later in life, on a trip to the Costa Rican jungle, my tactile obsession developed into a desire to somehow wear texture. This curiosity lit my passion for sculpting jewelry.
Every piece I make begins with a natural texture. Each piece is hand-carved, casted and finished in small batches in California. I sculpt, metal-smith and finish all jewelry in my Los Angeles studio and castings are made in San Francisco.
