My wearable pieces in silver, gold and platinum pay meticulous attention to line. The character and direction of a line has the power to communicate emotion and states of mind. The quality of a line is equal to an artist's signature. For me, this line can be best expressed in my work through techniques of metal forming and shaping. For this reason, the hammer remains my favorite tool in the studio. Line, along with form, weight and balance are key components that ensure a piece of jewelry resonates with the human form.
