“My jewelry pieces reflect the invisible energetic forms that are around us, connect us and are inside of us. They tend to take shape in abstract forms, and also resemble organic organisms like creatures, animals, beings, plants, trees, etc. All of my pieces have symbolism and have a narrative that revolves around universal creation and my Native American roots. I make my pieces with a direct and open approach to try and let my subconscious come through and reveal new meanings. I think of jewelry as a sacred form of protection and an enhancer of one's personality, so originality and boldness embody my work and I hope it inspires the wearers to express their inner power as well.”
