This sterling and fine silver oak tree with peridot leaves is presented in a wirewoven frame suggesting the shape of a shield, symbolizing the comforting protection our magnificent live oak trees evoke.
A mostly self-taught wire jewelry artist, I have lived in New Orleans for about 25 years and love to create pieces that reflect my love of the home that has adopted me.
My Louisiana Live Oak collection of wearable wire sculpture came into being after Katrina when I wanted to create jewelry not just beautiful, but meaningful. This work gained recognition from the Times-Picayune which named me one of the "Best New Artists" at the 2014 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.
I am currently hard at work on creating more flora and fauna of Louisiana, but in the meantime I could not resist the other temptations around me. Check out my newest collection of luscious long earrings inspired by the whimsical excess of Burlesque!
