My silver and gemstone jewelry designs are inspired by the colors and textures of the landscapes, rock formations, and plants of the southwest. Each of my designs is constructed by hand – one piece at a time – from sheets of precious metal and wire. Each piece incorporates organic textures and elements that I create using small hand tools and hammers. Some of my designs use elements that are woven from hair fine precious metal wire. The gemstones used in my designs come from all over – many cabochons are cut by other New Mexico artists.
