I have been designing and creating jewelry since 2000. My work includes metalsmithing, enameling, stenciling, and wire crochet techniques. My newest pieces incorporate flush setting, bezel set gemstones, gemstone embellishments and detailed stampings.
My line, Bon Temps, celebrates Louisiana in its designs featuring pelicans, egrets, magnolias, and cypress swamp scenes in sterling silver, copper, and brass. I also enjoy fabricating animals, flowers and other aspects of nature out of metals and have recently incorporated flush setting in these designs. In addition, I often create custom pieces for customers, and as always in all of my work, I strive to create and produce unique one-of-a-kind or limited edition wearable art in my pins, pendants, rings, bracelets and earrings.
I have been honored to have been selected by jury as a Louisiana Crafts Guild Master Craftsman and as the equivalent Mississippi Craftsman’s Guild status of Fellow. Visit my website (www.singularbydesign.com) and “like” my Facebook Page (www.facebook.com/singularbydesign) to see more of my work.
