Movement is, for me, the life force of design. Nature isn’t static, so why should jewelry not dance with similar vitality? Wind hits sand, creating patterns. Shells swirl with spirals. Texture marks the rhythmic bark of trees. Animals’ hides ripple as they run. Inspired by such energy in nature, I aim for movement to infuse every design in the way it swings on a hinge, falls from the ear or contours the wrist. Hence, my company tag-line: Designs that Dance! To achieve simplicity and movement, I explore silver’s versatility using etching, hammering, oxidation, sculpting and chasing to bring forth her many faces. I sometimes combine silver with pearls, shell, seeds, leather and wood. Occasionally, I use stones, though never for ‘bling.’  Contemporary, clean, versatile, wearable.
