The sterling silver and gold pieces are often created as collage and then broken down into their strongest elements to reveal the final design. I cast some pieces from found objects or previously hand fabricated pieces to give the final piece solid integrity. I like a balance of high polish and matte finishes on most pieces.
The Tagua nut pieces are hand carved, sometimes dyed with tea and other spices, and often torch kissed. The elements are then put together to form the final piece.
