"Split Cell" collar, 18k gold and silver, 18" x .5"

Thank you for visiting my site featuring a few of my handmade one of a kind and edition jewelry.  My art work evolves through study of organic structure and displaced shape and form.   The limited edition work is modern, organic and original in semi precious and precious metals, enamel, cement and patinas.  Sculptural and wearable. 
My newest work of natural forces, or field forces, is in high fire enamel on metal and mesh as wall works and as wearables. 
 
My public art commission "Arts District Medallions" is mounted on 54 lightpoles 16' high, a permanent installation in the Arts District,  Los Angeles. It is inspired by the early vinti and citrus culture in the area before railroad and the 1930's  Fourth Street Bridge trillium design and 80's placard signage for legal artist live work space.
My Downtown Los Angeles Arts District petite studio is open by appointment only and my work is represented locally at Freehand Gallery and DeNovo Gallery in Palo Alto, CA and other national galleries, see links and events.
