Artist's Statement

I grew up in Seattle, WA and went to college at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI. After graduating in 2014 with a BFA in Jewelry and Metalsmithing, I moved back home to pursue a career in jewelry.

Since then I have been creating jewelry in my studio, as well as working for other jewelers and volunteering for the Seattle Metals Guild. I constantly get asked Why jewelry? and my best answer is, I love making things that people love wearing.

I love the way jewelry interacts with the body, but also has a life of its own. I love the practicality of jewelry, as well as the limitless expression that accompanies it. The jewelry I make is based on conscious design, craft, and sustainability. I want my work to be beautiful, but more than that I want my jewelry to be a symbol for my environmental and social ethics.
