Artist Statement:

I listen to the stories we tell each other and those we tell ourselves. A flash of light, a glimpse into a strangers' window, clues to who we are. I'm fascinated by rusty things, the mark of the hand joined with the machine, and how our past shapes our future. My jewelry is my story, whispers from our past and talisman and the amulet. Jewelry can have power in the imagination of the viewer.
