Statement

Using jewelry as my love letter to food and everything food related, I attempt to create a distinct artifact from my journey; objects that create a direct channel to specific moments of comfort. I preserve memories, celebrate and connect to others by adorning the body with food.  While I look to edibles for inspiration and guidance, I look to my craft of metalsmithing to catalog and preserve these moments. With electroforming, fabrication I am able to create food-based forms; by adding color with vitreous enamels, powder coat, gemstones and gold I capture a moment in time, for all time.
