As an artist, Violet Street Designs represents my feelings, thoughts, and emotions. Before becoming an artist, I worked both in the United States and overseas. I spent time in the Middle East, Asia, and Europe. The art and colors of cultures are reflected in my work and aesthetic. I am drawn to the symmetry and colors of Middle Eastern and Arabic art, and the precision silversmithing of Asian art.
I make every piece by hand using traditional metalsmithing tools and techniques, spending days designing and executing each piece. I carefully select gemstones that are unique and colorful, but also of high quality, from trusted worldwide suppliers.
