I began my jewelry making career as a young boy with beadwork and woodcarving. In 2008 I graduated from Minneapolis Community Technical College with an AAS degree in Jewelry Design, Manufacturing, and Repair, also a Certificate in Jewelry Gemology. My career as a professional bench jeweler began in my last year of college, I have been fortunate to continue work for prominent jewelers around the Twin Cities metro area ever since. In 2010 I began my own studio practice in the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District.
I have a passion for the I love working with people to create one of a kind custom heirloom jewelry for weddings and special occasions. When I'm not working on your piece of jewelry you'll find me in my studio designing, experimenting and pushing different techniques and processes of jewelry making, or out in the world seeking inspiration!
Currently I work by appointment out of my studio in NE Minneapolis. I would love to help bring your jewelry dreams into a reality! Please e-mail to set up a consultation and learn more about the possibilities of creating your own custom jewelry!
