"Designing the piece is the most exciting aspect of what I do. Many times the piece changes form as I re-arrange my thoughts or discover new elements to incorporate into the design."

Living in the North Georgia Mountains is a constant inspiration to me. Being surrounded by nature enables me to dig deep into my primitive self, letting my work become a celebration of balance and form through the gifts given to us in nature. I find beauty in the shapes of bones and of trees in winter or the way a rock perches in the river. I find balance in contrasts of color, texture and shape. I fabricate each piece from sterling silver and use 22 karat gold to accent the piece.
