I was a crafty kid and was fascinated with my grandfather's sign shop and watching him paint! I loved drawing and making projects. Later, I pursued a singing/songwriting career that led me from Austin, Texas to Los Angeles. A friend taught me basic jewelry-making skills, and I was instantly hooked! I returned to Austin and gave up the music business and office life to pursue making jewelry full time. The artistry of the craft continues to endlessly fascinate me. It’s fun seeking out new design techniques to create a range of styles. Sometimes the process is an adventure, evolving into completely different designs from my original idea, and I just love it.
I create heirloom quality jewelry that is simple and easy to wear on the job, out with your gal pals or on a date! I only use precious metals in my work and also incorporate high quality semi-precious stones, fresh water pearls, abalone sea shell and Swarovski Crystals. When you wear my jewelry, I hope that you’ll celebrate you and feel beautiful, stylish and sexy!
