My inspiration is rooted in nature, and guided by the interplay of science, technology, and culture. I like materials (rocks, fibers, metals) with provenance and history. I value quality, functionality, durability, and ease of use. My jewelry and knits are designed to be worn and loved; my supplies to be incorporated into your best quality work. I gift-wrap and ship with recycled materials when possible, and employ a variety of waste-minimization techniques in jewelry and textile work.
