Mixed Media

Metal & Stone


I am a silversmith who works with precious metals, copper, bronze, and brass.  I create mixed media pieces by incorporating stones, fabric and wood and other found objects. I am an instructor at the Kingston Lapidary & Mineral Club located at the Tett Centre here in Kingston Ontario.


I have branded my own line of Adornametals Jewellery by  created my own packaging and graphic design elements.  

I do a lot of my own lapidary work, cutting and forming stones, and create many of my jewelry components

from hand, customizing each piece to create unique and one-of-a-kind pieces of wearable art.

Ceramic Pot - Tenmoku glaze with miniature copper yunomi & plate

Dark clay lidded pot was created with a miniature copper tea bowl known as a Yunomi.  It sits atop a copper plate that is part of the ceramic lid.

I have created a series of lidded pots that I call Pot Pots, the lids are pots that sport their own lids. This one has a copper lid with a turquoise set in the leaf knob.
