Raw and alloyed metals are worked with saw, hammer, torch and file to create individual designs. I sometimes use a rolling mill to emboss individual pieces of metal with natural materials such as corn husk or leather, giving the metal an organic texture. I incorporate different metals, stones, wood and other natural materials in my jewelry. I make each piece in my home studio. I have no employees or assistants to do the work for me. This assures that each piece is truly one of a kind and created by my own hand.
