The word REVERE means to show devoted deferential honor. It is an honor and practice of devotion to carry on the tradition of crafting jewelry for others. My mother owned and ran a small custom jewelry store outside of Chicago and it was there that I started my love affair with jewelry. There was something so magical about melting down raw metal and transforming it into a piece that will become part of someone's identity and a future family heirloom.
I hand form each piece in Portland, Oregon, keeping a bit of the raw metal exposed to show the transformation process that each piece has endured. I’m not influenced by the latest trends because I create pieces that are meant to stay with you for a lifetime. I want the people who wear REVERE to know a morally minded artist made their jewelry. I use recycled silver and gold in all of my forged pieces, and seek out ethically mined stones. I am always looking for opportunities to reuse materials.
