Jewelry

Part of the challenge when working with material is to take full advantage of pieces of varying size and shape, so that nothing is wasted. Because the ancient ivory that I use is often decomposed, broken, and cracked, there are many small pieces to be used. I take full advantage of these pieces by creating small jewelry pieces.

As with all of my work, I strive to create jewelry that shows off the beauty of the ivory or stone that it is created from. I create simple yet elegant pieces, with minimal ornamentation to distract from the materials and carved forms.
