Welcome! I am a Michigan native with more thank 35 years in the fine jewelry industry. My journey into the trade began at Meyer Jewelers Headquarters on Woodward Avenue in Detroit. I learned all phases of fine jewelry manufacturing and stone setting from old world master jewelers. My designs are carved by hand in wax, then solid cast using the lost wax casting method. Many designs are inspired by the beauty of the Great Lakes Region. Most work from my studio, Silver Loon, supports non-profit nature sanctuaries and historical preservation organizations. You can see my designs at many of Michigan's lighthouses, museums, nature sanctuaries, art galleries and finer gift shops throughout North America. Thank you for supporting my work, and for finding my studio on ArtFire!
