I have long had a love for gemstones, especially colored stones, but it was only a hobby while I worked in the medical field. I designed a few necklaces for friends with shops but mostly I stayed attached to medicine. When I got out of the military I decided it was time for a change and applied to GIA's New York campus.
The red string of fate is said to tie one's soul with that of another. It's a legend that says we are bound to those we love by fate. I believe that should be true for gems and jewelry as well. If a piece of jewelry calls to you, or calls the name of someone you love, it is special. If a gemstone makes someone's eyes come alight or the enamel work on a piece makes them smile, then it's a purchase they can be happy with for years to come
I am available for custom design work.
