About Me

I've been working with silver for over 10 years. I began taking classes in Columbus, Ohio from a wonderful woman named Wilma Cecil. I immediately loved metal as an artwork medium. Then I moved to Austin, Texas to study Architecture at The University of Texas. While I was there, I further developed my silversmithing skills by taking classes in the School of Fine Arts. I graduated with a degree in Architecture in 1997 and moved to Houston, Texas where I've been practicing Architecture for the last 7 years. My jewelry is, of course, influenced by my Architectural education. The balance of form, scale, and textures is as important in a small piece of jewelry as it is in a large building.

I take great care and pride while creating each design. I hope you will enjoy each piece as much as I enjoyed making it.

Jewelry

Each piece is handmade out of a combination of sterling silver, fine silver, copper and/or precious stones. My designs are simple and clean. I express the inherent beauty of the silver by hammering, twisting, soldering, wrapping, etc. The shape of the silver, itself, along with contrasting scales of materials provides elegant and interesting designs.



Judaica

In November 2003, my niece was born. I was inspired to make her a mezuzah as a baby gift. The design came from my "Wilma" broaches and everyone I showed it to loved it! They are all similar in style, but since each one is hand wrapped, they are all unique and slightly different. They make wonderful presents for Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, baby presents, wedding presents, and house-warming gifts.

The Mezuzah is a ceremonial object. The mitzvah or commandment of placing a Mezuzah is derived from Deuteronomy 6:4-9 "inscribe them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates", a passage commonly known as the Shema. A Mezuzah is mounted on every doorway in a Jewish home.
