Artist Statement:
 
Color has always been a source of joy and energy for me, whether it is in painting or jewelry making.  Painting with pastel or oil is a direct approach that is fulfilling my desire to create and work freely with color.  I find inspiration in everything beautiful in nature or by reflecting on my own thoughts and dreams. 

When creating a piece of jewelry, I often start by choosing an inspiring colored stone. I focus on high end one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry. Some of my pieces have a hidden side or a movable part, like my double-faced pendants.  My customers, here in the US and abroad in Switzerland and Japan know I like to create custom and personalized pieces incorporating any of their own ideas.  I get a feel for discovering what would fit the personality and style of the wearer and have made many unique pieces for the last 30 years in my studio in Mount Vernon.  I am a native of the French part of Switzerland and graduated from L’Ecole d’art appliqué of La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland as a professional goldsmith in 1979.  I worked as a goldsmith in Geneva Switzerland for Patek Philippe then Bucherer, before moving to Mount Vernon, WA in 1985.
