I aim to explore the traditional expectations of jewelry with the inclusion of comicality. Traditional jewelry is centered on the everlasting; through the use of gemstones such as diamonds and sapphires along with precious metals including silver and gold. I look to question, challenge and contradict traditional jewelry themes of preciousness and body adornment. My recent collection entertains the idea of “jewelry about jewelry”. A wearable jest that twists expectations and adds irony to traditional jewelry.

She currently resides and maintains a studio in Miami, Florida, where she designs and creates jewelry and body adornment founded on ideas of preciousness and irony. Her recent projects are greatly inspired by archetypes of jewelry, Cabinets of Curiosities, and the incorporation of coral as one of the elements in their execution.
