My jewelry making story begins long ago. I never set out to become a jewelry artist. Life has a funny way of taking you places you never expect! I was on my way to becoming an Occupational Therapist when I was sidetracked by my love of making jewelry. I was waiting tables while finishing the last of my graduate requirements and selling jewelry at a local flea market to support my bead addiction. An extremely rude customer prompted me to impulsively quit my waitress job and off I went to the boutiques to sell my jewelry. My jewelry was so well received I quickly changed paths and went to school for metal smithing. I have never looked back. I went on to achieve a degree as a goldsmith. I feel extremely blessed to be able to make a living doing what I love. My husband works along side me, managing all the business aspects. We are blessed with two beautiful boys and one moody cat.

Style & Quality
My designs are detailed, delicate, and feminine. I have developed my own special techniques combining the traditions of metal smithing and wire work to create unique jewelry with understated flair.
Metals used are sterling silver, 14k gold fill, 14k gold, brass, bronze and copper. Everything is nickel free.
I am obsessed with stones, so I spend a lot of time and energy seeking out the most unique, beautiful stones I can find. My inspiration comes from the earth, the stones, and the natural beauty of life.
Everything is handmade by me. It's all in the details. Every piece has its own personality, which I try to honor with quality materials, original design and fine craftsmanship.
