I am the founder of AMALGAMarts Atlanta (a jewelry and glass teaching studio and gallery) and have been a designing and creating one-of-a-kind jewelry for over 15 years. Primarily a metal smith, I enjoy using simple techniques such as metal cutting, forming, forging, and reticulation to make wearable art from sterling silver, gold, platinum, and steel. A scientist and artist, these two disparate loves come together in my jewelry to create pieces with simple, balanced lines. My pieces have a range of styles, but are often describes as having organic, industrial, or asian undertones.

I have been teaching for over a decade. As a self taught jeweler, I encourage students to develop an intimate knowledge of the materials through experimentation while at the same time providing individual, hands-on guidance. I take pride in my teaching and love to watch new jewelers explore their creativity.
