This is one of my first concept sketches of swallows in flight. The sculpted birds are seen throughout my EMPI Collection.
Strength, grace and inspiration come in every form, "EMPI Collection"
This original swallow bypass ring wax carving was created by the late James Bilello, Master Wax Carver. “It’s ready to be cast, set and polished!”
This Lotus Flower from my Japan trip this summer has a similar texture to my engraved swallow wings.
“Nature always amazes me.”
”The Winged Halo Ring” in its raw silver state shows how much attention and detail goes into finishing it. Its decorative back plate adds balance and all around beauty.
It was so much fun working with my model Tess on a photo shoot. The jewelry looked so amazing on her. “What a beautiful day.”

My first sale ever was with Jay, a local of Bridgehampton at the BH Guild Craft Fair. “It was pretty cool!”
