The beautifully complex facets of rough and cut stones inspire me to create gems of silver and pair real gemstones in jewelry. To further emphasize the differences between the surfaces, I use gems that are non-traditionally cut,  such as checkerboard and rose-cut stones. The energy created by pairing these divergent aesthetics is emphasized further through the use of monochromatic colorings, which focus the viewer on the symmetrical and asymmetrical entities.
