My career as a Silversmith has evolved over the years, starting with an apprenticeship with a Navajo smith in New Mexico in 1975. Since that time I have explored different techniques and materials that are now an expression of my life experiences and environment.

The goal of my work is to
My silver rings, bracelets, earrings, pendants and pins are completely handmade from sterling silver sheet and wire without any premade commercial findings. The process itself makes each piece an individual design.I have made numerous custom engagement and wedding rings and welcome custom orders.
Natural gemstones are often included in my work including amethyst, amber,garnet, opal, topaz, turquoise and crystals.
There will be an extensive collection of my work on display and for sale.
Custom orders are always welcome.
