Artist Statement

This work is driven by a deep personal interest in the science of stones, rocks, geologic process and the shaping of the physical earth. There is spirituality as well as beauty in something so magnificent and so unspectacular as the earth beneath our feet. Rocks, sand, and dirt can convey a sense of sacred space. A stone worn smooth by the tides can be soothing to the soul as well as the hand.


Spirituality dwells in the very act of making. If one is open to it, each part of the creative process can be a step in the long inner journey towards transcendence. Repetitive action becomes meditation; each piece becomes a prayer. This work is a reflection of my own inner journey, a consecration of both the mundane and profound, and my search for transcendence.

Spring is flying by and the conference will be here before you know it!

In this project, Linda invited 12 artists to create a link (a pendant-like adornment) utilizing their unique…See More

Hot Under the Collar: A Survey of Contemporary Necklaces


Choker, collar, lariat, torque, pendant, the necklace is one of the most diverse formats available to metalsmiths today. Whether cascading down the front, or draped down the back, the possibilities are nearly endless. The human torso provides us with one of our largest canvases, while still keeping body as site.

I think our final count was up around 100 people!

The whole thing kicked off Friday night with an opening for a fantastic show between ECU… Continue
