I use Northwest burl wood and inlay stone, mineral and metal.  Once I  combine these elements I make jewelry pieces in the classic cabochon forms wrapped in silver, and sculptures in the likeness of natural geometric shapes.  I do all the work myself and use all salvaged, scrap or drift wood from the Pacific Northwest.  I use all non-toxic glues and finishes and get most of my stone and metals from reclaimed sources or my own modest gatherings.
