In upheaval, there is comfort in the distant past. Protective talismans for health and connection to the ancestors are crucial for navigating these times. Intentional adornment adds a depth and richness to daily life akin to ritual. My work is an amalgam of inspirations: personal studies, travels, ancient artifacts, and a connection with the natural world. I am striving to create objects that can be worn and loved by you, and then someday, by those that loved you when they want to recall your essence. In this way jewelry transcends time, which is something I am very much intrigued by.
