“As an artist and a jeweler, you must find a way to accentuate the natural elegance of what are arguably the most beautiful materials found on earth.
JEWELRY IS MY MEDIUM AND TO MAKE IT, BY NATURE, IS TO BE MINDFUL OF ITS TECHNIQUES AND THE VALUE OF SUCH FINE MATERIALS. BUT THIS IS SECONDARY. THE FEELING I WANT TO IMPART IS ONE OF RADIANCE, IN EVERY SENSE: THAT OF LIGHT, OF EMOTION, OF ENERGY AND, OF COURSE, THAT OF BEAUTY.
I believe jewelry should always aspire to rival the awe we experience when we turn our eyes upward. The very process and purpose of designing — of refining one’s signature— is for me, to eventually locate this fine and illusory quality. My goal is to spin these precious materials into something that is much more than a beautiful object. I believe one’s designs should evoke their connection to space — its vastness, its majesty and its superlative form.”
