I make aesthetically unique designs that also function as wearable pieces. I find that in our contemporary computer culture CAD designer’s 3D printed jewelry transcend the traditional products of jewelry in form and material. Combining my inspirations, fabrication techniques, create vision, and the ability to print a variety of materials, and create organic shapes, efficiently and with endless capability, I produce works that result in functional one-of-a-kind pieces.
