"My passion for jewelry making  started in the midst of a career in the fashion world. I was greatly influenced while designing for Calvin Klein, honing my eye for choosing luxurious, sensuous materials and using them in clean, modern and sculptural forms.

While still inspired by the modern design movement, the best ideas come from spending time at the workbench combining the metal and gems until I find that balance of lightness and fluidity that I want the jewelry to convey."
