All of my work has a creation story. A connection that bonds the work with the wearer. I feel I’ve done my best when the client has a connection with the soul of the work and unites it with their spirit and adventure. And the story continues…
In essence my work is about connection, myth and personal power ~ I refuse to create for the sake of “eye candy” alone. The work must have meaning, myth and beauty or it has no real power. The worlds best treasures have, a good story attached. And like the natural world we live in, power is best expressed through beauty.
