The ancient art of Chasing and Repoussé has given me the ability to create these pieces. My primary focus with Botanicals has been cuffs. However, I thought it would be wonderful to add minute details in rings, earrings and pendants.
Sterling silver is one of the metals I employed, however, I experimented with some Japanese alloys, Shakudo and Shibuichi, to see what effects they created with the designs.
Of course, all the works focus on their namesake, Botanical, for flowers, leaves, acorns and more. Each piece is a labor of love. Attention to detail is a must. These works do reflect the organic nature of my style.
