My focus has always been to create beautiful shapes in precious materials inscribed with words that convey a story, an inspiration, or a thought, giving each piece a special and individual significance. My jewelry is inspirational and romantic to not only delight the eye, but also to lift the spirit. The collections have been in the making for over 30 years, covering a wide range of languages, scripts, themes and sentiments. Some are faithful adaptations of ancient and medieval pieces of poesy jewelry from major museum collections. Many are strikingly contemporary designs that enhance the inscribed message. The collection now spans many languages, dozens of scripts, and scores of authors and artists. The phrases include secret messages, codes and symbols, and cover the world's major faiths and cultures. All of my jewelry is made with care and pride by American craftspeople in New York.
