Moods and emotions are my main inspiration. Taking a "feeling" and transposing it into metal and stone to design a physical manifestation of a fleeting, ephemeral moment is always the first step in my work. I'm always aware that the person who wears my jewelry may not experience the same emotion that I put into it, but I am confident that they'll have some reaction of their own. There are people who wear jewelry simply because it makes them feel better or because they think it's pretty. It can be a way to show the world a little bit of what is going on inside your head. Wearing a beloved piece of jewelry can remind us of a moment in time, a loved one, or a special place or event. It can make you feel beautiful, comforted, or remind you that you're loved. Every time I begin to create a piece, I am conscious of this - my state of mind and the potential to alter the state of mind of the person who will wear it.
