-My ideas come from nature, and my work has always made reference to some aspect of the natural world. My pieces of jewelry are elements of landscape whether the observer recognizes them or not. The references are through the surface, color and shape of the metal. I twist and bend the surface of the metal or hammer it into tree limbs or rocks or color it with the use of electrical currents. Some materials are evocative of riverbeds, bark or twigs, while other shapes recall crevices or enclosures in rock formations.   A common theme in my work has been the development of a sense of place. Whether it's jewelry or hollow ware, whether it's the Southwest or the Northwoods or Japan, my work is a response to something I have taken from travels and distilled from the memory of the experience.
