I am inspired by the strange and unusual.  I’m a scientist/artist who fabricates Memento Mori and other jewelry using recycled copper, silver and brass, found objects, natural semi-precious gemstones, and antique portraits.  Each one-of-a-kind piece has a life of its own and contains at least one element that is recycled.  My necklaces, earrings, and pins have a confident, playful and quirky feel.
