Metal is my passion, with serendipitous adventures in many other mediums. I work primarily in either fine or sterling silver, and occasionally copper and bronze. The application of technical skills and problem-solving is satisfying, and artmaking gives an opportunity to explore infinite choices and challenges. Current studio obsession: Italian Filigree.
