Upfront, he invested considerable time getting to know me—my taste, my lifestyle, the backstory behind each piece as well as soliciting “honest” feedback on initial ideas. His artistry, superb craftsmanship and innovative creative process turned treasured but unwearable jewelry pieces into unique highly wearable works of art.”
