My awareness of nature’s inherent beauty teamed with my artistic knowledge and skills fuels my passion to create. I believe in the early arts and crafts philosophy that craft-makers should use materials that are local and familiar to them. And so, when I leave the trout stream, my pockets are often filled with such treasures as river stones and twigs. Back at my studio, these materials come together with precious metals and gems to form designs that I love.
“Creating custom work has been a vital part of my business for over a decade. Designs that come from the interaction between artist and client are designs that could come no other way.”
Custom work begins with communication. This first step is the most vital part of any project. Following intitail contact I generally get right to determining the budget for the job and do my best to give a ball park figure. Generally speaking, custom work begins with a design for which I charge between $50 and $100 per hour to create.
Some of my custom work has been the most exciting projects I’ve ever finished!
