“I am consistently drawn to the patterns, textures and colors that nature has to offer us. I enjoy the way in which a simple element like a feather or a fish scale, in repetition, can become such a complex and beautiful vision. I translate these images into my jewelry by breaking the patterns down to their basic shapes and color schemes. Through the use of basic fabrication techniques, I construct each piece in layers, treating it as a collage.” Member Since 2011. Raleigh, NC.
