The ocean has inspired me to use mussel shells as models in many of my creations. The inside of a moon shell has a logarithmic spiral that fascinates me and is seen in many pieces. You will find starfish in silver and some with gold accents combined with fused silver rings. My drawings and etchings in copper are transformed into my sculptural fine silver pieces. Spirals are always central.
