Drawing inspiration from California's dramatic landscape, foggy beaches and looming trees, each piece is crafted with care and reverence for nature's intriguing and irregular patterns, shapes, and forms. I create sculptural pieces using the individuality of stones as the foundation of my designs. As an art curator and daughter of an architect, reverence for these forms of expression find they way into my designs and blend into southwestern classics like bolos.
A native Texan, who has spent much time in the Southwest, I love bolos. They remind me of my childhood, Dad dressing up, summers in Colorado and trips to Santa Fe. I enjoy their androgyny and the proliferation of them on the stylish hipsters of San Francisco streets. I forge each element of my bolos: from the clasp on the back to the tips, which I hand-draw out of tubing.
All gems are hand made with love and care by me in San Francisco.
If you are interested in a custom piece of jewelry, please email me at email@example.com. I will share my inventory of stones and we can plot to create a fantastic piece for you out of gold or silver.
