As a child, I apprenticed for a master goldsmith and talented artist in New Jersey for 12 years. During my youth collecting stones and gems fascinated me. This passion has led me in my career for the past 31 years. The earth has given us a bounty of beautiful precious gemstones and metals to cut and forge. I use these elements to create uniquely inspried design that last a lifetime.

Today my business is primarily focused on producing one-of-a-kind designs for the gallery as well as custom works to meet my client’s needs. The jewelry is created in a studio that is filled with highly skilled technicians from the jewelry industry. These jewelry artists are responsible for bringing my design concepts to the completed piece of art.
