Growing up, industrial tools, torches, and traditional metalsmithing techniques were customary. My family taught me to be resourceful and gave me an understanding of the tools at hand. Looking back, I realize that rifling through my dad’s toolbox equally met my enthusiasm for digging through my grandmother’s jewelry box. With that knowledge and an awareness of my continued love of adornment, I have since added small, calculated, and precious levels of refinement to those processes and materials. I feel comforted by the familiarity of the tools and a shop environment, and the processes of jewelry and metalwork come very naturally to me.
