Early plastics like Bakelite, galalith and celluloid were cast, hand-cut, milled and polished with care into beautiful jewelry, hair accessories radios, household items and more. I began casting plastics into jello molds and creating jewelry that was bold and colorful but not for everyday wear.
Originally from the Boston area, I studied Jewelry and Metalsmithing at Massachusetts College of Art and Design and was introduced to using alternative materials in jewelry making. I relocated to San Francisco where I learned laser-cutting and my process was completely transformed. Soon after that I launched my jewelry line. Each piece is a small work of art designed by me and made in my studio in The Mission District of San Francisco.
