ARTIST STATEMENT

As a classically trained sculptor, I spent many years developing a keen eye for form and balance. 

The tiny sculptures I create are meant to be worn with love as talismans. To be simple, bold and timeless.

My deep love of art history as well as the sculptural element to my work are really what drive my creativity. Each design begins in my studio with my two hands. Carved from wax then cast into metal using the ancient art of lost wax casting.

We employ sustainable practices in our studio, and choose the greenest options available to try to keep the carbon foot print as small as possible. 

From start to finish I want the purchasing experience to be an extension of my artwork and no detail should be overlooked.
