As a toy prototype sculptor for many years and as a child I have always sculpted and fabricated small precious objects. Making delicate and beautiful works in metal & stone seemed like a very natural progression.
In 2005, after thinking about it for years, I finally took the plunge, went and bought a basic jewelers set up, arranged my studio accordingly and began by making some silver rings for my boyfriend (now husband). As one piece led to another, each technique learned and skill acquired took me to a new level. I invested more of my time, energy & income to my new found love.
I am incredibly happy at my work table sculpting wax, finishing casts and fabricating gold and silver treasures. I absolutely LOVE making tiny artworks that will be worn with pleasure by others.
All pieces are cast in NY's jewelry district with recycled or ethically derived metals then fabricated and finished by my hand. I sculpt and clean all my own waxes and models and work in a home studio in my East Village, NYC loft. My awesome husband, beautiful daughter, super cute kitties and tiny dog give me moral support on a daily basis.
Apart from spending time with my family and friends, making jewelry is my favorite thing to do.
