My cold-forged (hammered) sterling silver jewelry is created one at a time, by hand, in my garage workshop. I use various antique hammers that leave marks on the surface of the metal to give it a truly handcrafted look and feel. I strive to create jewelry that is casual, unisex, and comfortable to wear every day.
Much of my work is inspired by road trips, the golden age of the motel, the atomic era, and the signs along the way. My Atomic Highway series features modern retro designs made using traditional cold-forming techniques.
Some of my work incorporates pieces of real vintage auto body steel as well as designs inspired by the classic lines of vintage cars. I also enjoy creating pieces inspired by ancient protective symbols.
I do not cast my pieces. Each one is one of a kind and handcrafted by me start to finish.
