smith: To smite or strike. To shape and define by hammering.
Jewelers and metalsmiths--all makers, really-- are by nature inquisitive and adventurous souls, forging together idea, function and material. Today's metalsmiths push way beyond conventional notions of what jewelry is and how precious materials are applied. The contemporary jewelry and metals studio is a place where the anvil, computer and laser welder all coexist. And contemporary metalsmiths embrace it all: from the oldest traditions to the newest technologies.
The innovations of countless generations of artists and smiths have given us the traditions of our field and their process of discovery continues.
Everything that you find here has been made by hand in my Seattle studio: Custom jewelry or commissioned artwork, steel or sterling, bronze, gold, wood or plastic; ring, earring and neckpiece: it all begins with the head and ends with the hand.
I hope that you'll consider this site a gallery window and visit often.
