rare bits was inspired by the beauty of nature, the mysticism of the sky, and the turn of the earth under our feet...

I've been making things for as long as I can remember.

I'm a working artist, living and loving in the city of Detroit. I'm a self-taught jewelry designer and silver smith, now teaching new generations of students the beloved tradition and craft. I live and work from my studio every day, and nothing makes me happier than doing exactly that. I'm inspired by old masters like Fred Harvey & Effie Calavaza, our earth's incredible beauty and mystery, and the unique beauty of natural American turquoise and other precious stones.
