About the Chef

I began making jewelry as a way to relax from my crazy 30 year career as a professional chef.  I worked in some great restaurants, taught culinary school and also published cookbooks.

Fast forward and jewelry making is now a full time gig.  Along the way, I also became a GIA graduate gemologist and jewelry appraiser.

My wish is that each piece of jewelry I make has a life of it's own. Being a chef is very demanding but also incredibly rewarding.  This jewelry celebrates your 24/7 life.

I am not in the kitchen anymore, but my jewelry is!

All CHEFJEWELRY is made in my studio in Arizona.

Me as sous chef, Chanterelle, NYC, circa 1988 or thereabouts.

Keep it spicy!
