“I’ve always had a love of jewelry. I collected vintage jewelry when I was really young and had a real appreciation for it. My mother was an antiques dealer, so she instilled in me a curiosity about the history, craftsmanship and story behind each piece. I was also a collector of things – shells, rocks, seeds, pods, little beautiful things, and I would always put these objects on top of my hand or wrist and say, “I want to wear this, why can’t I wear this?!” One day I think my dad finally got tired of me saying that, and he said “Let’s go make something!” So I made my first ring when I was about 14 in my dad’s garage. He had a workshop down there with a lot of tools… he isn’t a jeweler, just the kind of person who can make or fix anything. We looked around the shop, found some metal, a copper pipe (a makeshift ring mandrel), put it in a vice and with a rubber mallet I hammered my first ring. Growing up, he really encouraged me to use the tools around me to execute my ideas, and not be afraid of them or be afraid of getting dirty. The experience of having an abstract idea and being able to make with my own hands a tangible thing that I could wear – well, that was it, I was completely hooked and I knew I was going to be a jeweler.”
