Rocky Mountains, Colorado

As long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with textures.  To this day, I cannot resist touching a cashmere sweater or a large rock while hiking or a smooth gemstone at the Tucson Gem Show.  Each texture tells a story.    
My love for texture and the outdoors are the driving forces behind my jewelry designs.  As a former competitive triathlete and personal fitness trainer, I have spent countless hours running and cycling in the Rocky Mountains. 
Through pushing the boundaries in metalsmithing by fusing sterling silver, I create conversation pieces that are inspired by the Rocky Mountains, the southwest desert landscape, and geometric elements. Through my process of fusing sterling silver, I have the freedom to blend my love for texture and the beauty of Mother Nature to create modern jewelry that sparks curiosity and connection.
