One-of-a-kind jewelry with precious stones

I have always been fascinated with design and the way everything has to balance in order for it to make a visual statement. This is what drew me to metalsmithing. I enjoy taking a flat sheet of metal and by just cutting, hammering, forging, joining and embellishing it with some color; it turns into an extraordinary piece of wearable art. “I create a One of a Kind wearable art piece for the Woman who does not want to wear what every other Woman is wearing”.
