There is a sacred quality to the creative work that I do, in that each piece has a distinct meaning to reflect. I create metal jewelry that is inspired by the ancient symbols of spirit.
As a jewelry designer, I create wearable art that carries the reflections of archetypal and sacred symbols. These symbols are sacred objects that may be worn as a reminder of the intangible energy of spirit. They are imbued with the intentional energy of sacred qualities. Each piece represents it’s own unique power. Protection, Abundance, Goddess Power, The 7 Chakra’s, The Sacred Eye of Egypt, The Ankh, Transformation and whatever moves my spirit to create…..
My art is an expression inspired by ancient tribal cultures of Egypt and Africa and includes the reclamation and celebration of the Goddess. The process of creation allows me to explore, reveal and follow the path of the creative healing arts. I bring the hope to my work that it is imbued with the vibrational energy of sacred qualities, during the act of creation and the actual manifestation of that work. That my jewelry will serve as a catalyst for healing, not only to my own psyche and soul, but also to those who wear it and bear witness to it.
