Accessories – Raleigh

I was born in Durham, N.C. and attended Savannah College of Art and Design for my bachelors in Fine Art. I have been working to create personalized accessories for the past five years. Having learned a wide variety of mediums through various courses and self-teaching, I continue to explore new techniques and methods of metal working. What is the best part of what I do? The people who request my work. I can\'t begin to count the numerous stories I\'ve been told from people who have purchased my pieces. These stories have ranged from a necklace or bracelet time piece pendant being used to pop the big question for an engagement, to the adornments for fire dancing, to a gift for a child with autism. I first opened up to others with my work, and then they in turn opened up to me. I have always been blessed by creating for others, and I have found no better way to spend my time than sharing myself through art and helping others express themselves. What I find a loss for words in, I express through visuals.
