Happy New Year! I've made a resolution to start a blog discussing my interest in ancient jewelry and ancient architecture and how they have influenced my work . I am also going to explore the various functions of jewelry over the ages and what jewelry has signified and what inherent value it has held beyond that of the materials.

Jewelry is not just pretty things meant purely to adorn for vanity's sake or for showing off wealth. Jewelry, to me, is a form of communication between the past and the present and between the wearer and the viewer. It can also be a very personal statement wielding inner strength, self-empowerment and spiritual fulfillment.
