Handcrafted Jewelry Designer Based in Fairhope, Alabama
In 1976 I became a goldsmith’s apprentice under my father. Using Old World integrity and workmanship, he trained me in the fine art of jewelry design. My designs, integrating graceful, natural forms with a contemporary flair are influenced by what I experienced while growing up on the Texas Gulf Coast. I strive to create wearable art; to me this means jewelry with a unique design that’s fun and easy to wear. I envision my jewelry as miniature sculptures and I work to carry out the design throughout the entire piece.
My jewelry is made heavy so it can be handed down from one generation to the next; something I feel is missing in today’s mass-produced jewelry market that is dominated by lightweight, promotional items.
