As a lifelong diver, I dive for all the shells in Flotsam & Co. jewelry-- many of them found only in Hawaii or in excess of 100+ feet.
Just as "flotsam" describes wreckage from a ship, FLOTSAM & CO incorporates found materials into its jewelry, giving new form and life to objects which may otherwise be considered debris and detritus.
With a background in fine art and design from The Cooper Union in New York City, I merge maritime art with new forms and modern materials. Flotsam & Co. is a unique jewelry line which marries my love of the ocean with my passion for design.
