12th House Venus is a collection of unusual adornments, fashioned out of raw elements with patience and skill in Dallas, TX.

Dark patinas, rough textures, and intentionally marred surfaces juxtaposed with smooth, gleaming metal invite one to consider the beauty kept quiet, secret, and tucked away while the eye of the world is distracted by the glimmer of the surface self.

Every unique piece is handcrafted in the artist’s home studio from start to finish. Prefabricated elements are kept to a minimum–e.g., some chains and clasps–and no pieces are cast for quick reproduction.  All textures are brought out of the metal by the artist using a variety of techniques, so that each and every piece, including collection items, is one-of-a-kind and unique.
