I have been working as a jeweler for the past 23 years, having previously been a glass artist. My work has been featured in many shows and exhibitions.
Metal work is sterling silver with a 24k gold overlay fused by heat and pressure, an ancient Korean technique called Keum-bo. Most of the work is hollow-formed, which gives a substantial appearance and light weight. I find inspiration in the natural world, and in particular the human form and voice. To quote Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Nature is an endless combination and repetition of a very few laws. She hums the well-known air through innumerable variations.”
