Although the Calla lily blooms year round, I began to make this design in various vibrant colors for spring and summer. The yellow is my favorite:).

I enjoy the challenge of designing/creating jewelry that is very volumetric yet sits naturally and comfortably on the body. I like to think of the jewelry as small nomadic sculptures.

The calla series is made up of 3 layers of copper that are separately hammered and formed. The inside layer is torch enameled. Liver of sulfur is used as a patina to contrast the vibrant enamel color.
