Inteplei(in-tuh-play) jewelry is created through exploration and play, often with no clear outcome in mind. Themes are built around recurring elements; an interplay of simple geometrics, organic forms, and a minimalist aesthetic. Influenced by the diversity of modern architecture and the natural world. My work is a combination of engineering and aesthetics. With a direct approach
to composition, constructions are based on tension systems, and connections are made by the simplest means. Experimenting with various material and their possibilities of expression has resulted in a collection of individualistic jewelry that is equally prepared to make
a statement, and become an everyday favorite. I am self taught as
an artist and metalsmith, each piece of my work is carefully constructed by hand in my studio workshop in Boone Iowa.
