 the Ancient Art of Goldsmithing 

  My pieces reflect a long time fascination with the ancient art and jewelry of the Egyptian, Etruscan and Celtic cultures.   Methods such as chasing and repoussé allow me to create a relationship between convex and concave surfaces.   Granulation, a decorative fusion technique common to the creation of jewelry in antique times, adds lively patterns of intriguing detail.   Most of my jewelry is finished with a process of surface depletion, to leave fine gold that is then frosted with glass brushes and highlighted with burnishing steel.   Natural gemstones bring color accents into my designs.
