My home workshop is located in the historic district of a small New England village. Each piece is carefully hand-wrought in precious metals of 14k gold, sterling silver, gold overlay or 14k gold over sterling by using the traditional, centuries-old methods of the metalsmithing trade. The metals are forged, chased or peened, then polished to a high shine; many are embellished with luminous precious and semi-precious stones and lustrous freshwater pearls. Designs range from simple and classic to contemporary and whimsical. Cast pieces, using the “lost-wax” process, are inspired by the seasons of nature. Constructed pieces evolve out of simple and natural patterns found everywhere.
