I design jewelry for women like you who love organic artistic jewelry design, are lovers of one-of-a-kind jewelry, appreciate the uniqueness in each piece, and best of all love it for self-expression to show your own individual style.
My interest in jewelry came when I was a young girl growing up in Santa Cruz California. I would, as a teenager go down to Pacific Avenue in Santa Cruz and shop around at all the little boutiques. I remember noticing that I could never find the exact jewelry to fit my own unique style.
There was a building called the ID building that had a bunch of little shops in it. One of which was the Vault. The Vault was a boutique jewelry store and had some very unique, amazing Jewelry that I would gaze upon and dream about. I found this to be my style, however, pretty expensive for a young teenage girl. My dad bought me two pieces of jewelry from here that I wore constantly in my younger days and still have to this day.
This was when I discovered that Jewelry tells your own unique story.
I am a self-taught metalsmith and have studied many online videos and have learned from much experience. Trial and error for sure. My approach to jewelry making is basically I do not have an exact plan but rather an idea that I let morph into a piece once I start. It may be that I start with a ring in mind and go from there, just by picking up a piece of metal and seeing where it takes me.
My materials are sourced from fair trade as well as I use organic pickles and patinas. My goal is to make my jewelry as organic as possible.
So I ask you, who are you, and are you ready to wear your own unique style of jewelry to empower your own uniqueness?
Well, then my jewelry is for you!
