Jewelry

About

I believe that jewelry is a sacred narrative. Jewelry captures a moment of significance for the wearer; it marks important transitions in a life. It symbolizes relationships with one another, with one’s community, with one’s cultural identity and with one’s spirituality. 

I strive to create timeless jewelry which is rooted within tradition while maintaining a contemporary edge and elegance. I firmly believe that culture is never lost, but rather forgotten, and creating art is a way to remember. Working with these materials and imagery connects me to my ancestors.
