About the artist:
My raw materials are items like coins, silverware, keys, etc. Items that are often stored in boxes and drawers, that are overlooked or no longer used; forgotten. I like to transform these everyday items into tiny works of art/jewelry. By pouring my focus and attention in creating a piece, people start to look closer and appreciate the tiniest details. This change of perspective is at the heart of what I do. That and the hand-working techniques that I enjoy learning along the way, always pushing myself to grow as a metalsmith and artist. I started off doing this in 2014 using basic metal smithing techniques like hand-forging. Then I taught myself stamping and acid-etching, soldering, bow drill and piercing saw work, & stone setting. I enjoy doing most processes by hand, using nothing that plugs into a wall. That changed when my interest turned to hand-engraving. I studied the art and history of it for about a year before I began making my own engraving machine by repurposing items. I then spent a year doing mostly engraving work to develop my skill. I love talking to folks about my processes and even doing quick live demos of some of my tools. The joy I feel in what I do is apparent in how I interact with my customers. I strive to create a welcoming and fun experience when people visit my booth and hope that they leave full of wonder and inspiration.
