I dis­cov­ered met­als as a medium while at­tend­ing the Sa­van­nah Col­lege of Art and De­sign. Af­ter grad­u­at­ing, I had the priv­i­lege to work as a bench jew­eller for sev­eral years, be­fore tak­ing the plunge into my own busi­ness in 2009. I hand-fab­ri­cate ev­ery­thing from sil­ver and gold, and draw my in­spi­ra­tion from a com­bi­na­tion of ar­chi­tec­ture and na­ture. I en­joy bal­anc­ing strong struc­tures with del­i­cate tex­tures and pat­terns. In 2010 I be­gan in­cor­po­rat­ing stingray leather into my work. I treat it like a pre­cious stone by mak­ing hol­low forms and in­lay­ing the pieces. In 2013, I was hon­oured to re­ceive a Saul Bell Award for my “Stingray Feath­ers” necklace.
