Apotropaic Adornment + Storied Statement Pieces

People say my work is "badass" and when they try my pieces on they say, "This makes me feel like a badass!!"...especially the "statement" rings, so in a way...I am kind of a #badassenabler.

I began working with metal in 2011 during my decades-long graphic design career. Metalsmithing gave me an outlet to produce tangible designs after years developing digital marketing content. I draw inspiration from my surroundings (and sometimes the critters I encounter) along with the moon, music, and the meanderings of my mind while running and running around. When I am not at the bench or running around, I might also be found down many a rabbit hole (either nose in a book or in my head) on topics of esoterica, art + jewelry history, gemstones, and archaeology relating to any and all of the them.

I would describe my work as timeless or, perhaps, even from another time (like, maybe something dug up out of the ground after hundreds of years) and maybe a little on-trend, yet trendless. I make pieces that speak to me - pieces I want to wear myself - but, I hope, also speak to you that you want to wear, too!!

Sometimes its cool to be a follower...
Instagram is the best place to follow along in the "bench made" process and you get to peep pieces before they are listed and other cool stuff.
