All my respect to the Queen. Her art defined the political moment that soul music served. Aretha embodied grace and gutbucket emotion; political fervor and deep personal desire; musical expertise and improvisatorial curiosity; humor, rhythm, sexiness, reserve. The spirit. The flesh. RIP #queenofsoul#aretha#arethafranklin
One of my conceptual pieces: Tangled - Copper, 2016
“It's like when the radio isn't tuned in, and all you hear is that irritating noise. It's like when your computer freezes because it's running too many programs at once. It's like riding a roller coaster all day long. It's like a car stuck in the snow with the wheels spinning.
It's the ADHD brain.”
I’ll be in Portland this week at the Society of North American Goldsmiths conference.
The trunk show on Saturday is free and open to the public, so come check out my jewelry and the work of other amazing metalsmiths from all over the country.
And if you are attending the conference, I’ll be working at the Student Exhibition on Wednesday and at Adorned Spaces on Thursday. Come say hi!
Swipe for more details.
I’m so freakin’ excited!!! 😁✨🙌🏼
Just finished fabricating these earrings. Handmade from start to finish. Contemporary new design with clean, balanced lines, plus a beautiful texture to add complexity.
PM me to pre-order. These are already going to Portland.
I love this cocktail ring so much I’ve decided to make a series with different gemstones. PM me if you’d like me to make one of a specific size for you. Otherwise they end up being a number 5, which fits me 😁
The red/orange stone is a Carnelian and the other one is a tiger’s eye. 😍
Officially sold and the new owner moves in tomorrow.
It’s bittersweet 😁😭
Our first house, that we were so proud to remodel with our own 4 hands. From knocking down walls, pouring concrete and building fences, to tiling and painting. What an adventure this was. We learned new skills, and we learned to work as a team. It thought us to have patience with one another, to overcome frustration when we made mistakes, and to be resilient when we had to re-do a project and keep working until late. I’d recommend it to any couple in need of therapy 😂😂 So many good memories in this house with our dogs Dexter and Samba, and with family and friends... change is good, so let a new chapter of our lives begin.
But what are we gonna do with ourselves now without a remodel project? 😂
Hit me up if you need design services, I’m already itching to start a new project.

From my first line of jewelry, 8 years ago, one of the philodendron pieces I made.
Think I’ll make some more pieces inspired by them, since the internet has been going Monstera crazy lately.
Split leaf philodendron aka Monstera Deliciosa.
Spring is here!!! I got outside to soak up some sun and observed the beauty of plants more closely today. And I noticed that birds are singing more vigorously with all the sunshine. Sun is life! Some say the Sun is the real God. #ibelieveit
