Welcome!  I hope you enjoy my works

At the Fort Henry Gift Giving Show in Kingston, Ontario December 2011 

"I am passionate about creating jewellery that excites the wearer.  My work is both representational and abstract.  I practice traditional silversmithing methods with a contemporary twist."

    I graduated from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design with a major in metalsmithing.  I have been fabricating sterling silver jewellery for twenty years now.   I create my works from sterling silver sheet, tubing, casting grain and wire, and incorporate semiprecious stones, beads, and pearls.
    I build a lot of my jewellery in wax, then cast the wax models  in sterling silver, using the lost wax casting process.  I design, fabricate and cast all of my own work, working following traditional silversmithing techniques.

Working at my jeweller's bench, hand sanding a sterling silver pendant I had built in wax and cast.  All of my works are fabricated by me, from beginning to end

My ambition is to create unique jewellery that excites the senses.  I love working with my hands & am constantly inspired by textures of different materials.  I love experimenting with form - molding it, and pushing it to its limit.  I love the fluidity of metal, the way it looks raw, and taking it to the finishing point of polishing it into a beautiful piece of art.

Above is a hand carved wax I built for a ring face, sprued up and ready to be invested for casting
