About the Artist

The medium of jewelry, and specifically enamel has long been my passion, yet I did not have an opportunity to formally learn the craft until I finished my MA in Archaeology in 2015. I felt ecstatic as I begin taking my first classes of metalworking and enameling, but soon begin acquiring personal tools, materials, kiln and began fabricating pieces at my apartment, at every opportunity and free time I possessed. Being a daughter of two artists and having a foundation of various artistic media from an early age helped tremendously in honing the craft which I lusted over for decades.
Admittedly, my enamels are primarily products of pure imagination and creativity. I rarely plan the exact shape of metal I pierce out, nor do I draw and plot out where each cloisonné wire will go - I simply sit down and let my creativity flow. A wonderful example of this spontaneity is my piece “Ram’s Horns” which was fabricated by fold-forming one sheet of copper, creating an intricate cloisonné wire detail, and enameling a multicolored non-representational design.
With that said, I have also produced pieces which draw clear parallels and inspiration from Ancient cultures and classical art motifs which I spent years studying as an Archaeologist. This was particularly the case when I begin fabricating my Egyptian Revival statement piece.
