"I aspire to have all of my jewelry be a piece of wearable art. I try to think 'out-of-the-box' and use my metalsmithing and design skills to create jewelry which shows balance and beauty, yet not always be symmetrical or expected. My goal is to showcase each gem's color and energy to give the wearer that 'special' feel."
