I’ve developed a vocabulary of elements from the materials I work with, dyed coconut shells, banana seed pods. Each piece evolves as these elements inhabit the space in a biomorphic composition. These elements have an intimate relationship with each other, which the viewer is invited to interpret. In my work, I draw inspiration from ancient alphanumerical systems, contemporary architecture, and my own personal cultural history. I am intrigued with balance and proportion and feel as if each piece will find the axis on the wearer. My work is an exploration of form and materials, each equally important. I feel firmly rooted in the historical tradition of my craft. I am committed to the use of materials for their color texture and versatility. Often the material is the inspiration for the piece of jewelry.
