Interested in versatility and wearability, I strive to create jewelry that has universal style with a modern perspective. My work is meant to be the go-to piece of jewelry that you wear every day, easily transitioning for any occasion. Using classic metalsmithing techniques and the age-old process of Chasing and Repousse,  I hand make every piece, keeping the wearer in mind at all times. Experimenting with materials and subject matter helps my brand evolve while maintaining my modern wearable aesthetic. 

I earned my B.F.A in Jewelry and Objects from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2015. Since graduating, I have moved back to my hometown of Norfolk, VA and started my jewelry company, Davenport Designs LLC. I am also the Silver Jewelry instructor for the City of Norfolk, teaching a variety of 8 to 10 week long metalsmithing classes as well as 1 to 2 day workshops. 

I travel the east coast, participating in juried art shows selling my original jewelry. You can find my work at art shows, in local stores, or here on my website!
