Inspiration for this and much of my work is generated from an ethnological appreciation of different cultures. My design esthetic is influenced by primitive tribal jewelry and artifacts' as tiles, pottery, textiles, garments, and the colors and hues within all of them. I relish the ornate details within ancient weaponry and armor and am fortified by history of all genres. I find foods and herbs from different lifestyles throughout the world endlessly stimulating. I'm encouraged everyday by family, music, architecture, nature, and the ecosystems within.
One of my favorite things to do is to go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the NYC with my amazing eight-year-old son. He now has a love and fondness for the museum experience that is growing close to his mommy's.
. . . thank you for letting me share myself with you!

Avoid perfumes, lotions and oils on your design or you may find the "metals" chains, component beads, etc. will patina and take on and new more rustic beauty over time.
