When I tell people how I fabricate my work without casting any of the tiny components, their first reaction is: “You’ve got to be kidding.”  I’m not.

I like the hands-on approach of manipulating metal.  I forge; extrude; file; solder; fuse gold (bond with heat only, no solder); etch; sandblast; and polish.  I primarily use various colors of 18K gold, in combination with other precious and non-precious materials.
