“I began my jewelry design venture over 20 years ago in Waimanalo with a Hawaiiana collection that incorporated a variety of mixed mediums as well as non-precious metals. Over time I have developed a wide variety of processes and have accomplished a very personal interpretation of jewelry design by mixing brass, copper and nickel silver…. taking many creative liberties along the way. All of my work is designed and produced in my studio, listening to jazz and sixties classics, on the Windward Coast of Oahu”
I use specific chemical treatments for patina coloration and antiquing effects and for contrast clarification. The etching process that I use is always being updated as I find new designs that I feel produce an effective image. The clear coat that I apply to all surfaces is an acrylic based automotive coating that is quite durable. The findings on earrings are hypo-allergenic.
