​These one-of-a-kind pieces take the inspiration from the stone. I am drawn to using turquoise in my work because I love the varieties and colors of this stone. They can be blue, green, black and white, and combinations of those colors.   I want to inject a unique perspective into the turquoise jewelry space by using modern clean designs.  The use of black, white and grey stones is inspired by my time living in major cities like Rome, Washington, DC, Seattle and Pittsburgh.  I love the black monochromatic look of city dressing; however, there is also something refreshing and classic about the black and white look in fashion.  The grey stones are a nod to my time living in Seattle, the place whereI learned to be a metalsmith.
