"I have has developed a unique art form independent of other mainstream jewelers. My path has led me to borrow from the ancients. The first amulets and extra attire of humans in their evolution down from the trees and out of the caves were probably made from bones. Crafting and wearing bone is a very special way of connecting with the “Great Mystery.” Bone is also one of the softest and most beautiful materials available. Over the years, I have added to my designs using materials such as ancient walrus and woolly mammoth tusks. I feel I am merely, through my simple design eye, fixing these pieces so others can carry them around with them before the pieces return to dust, as we all ultimately must. I retain reverence for life while appreciating the beauty of bones."
