Jewelry has been a passion of mine for many years. I began creating my own jewelry when I was 14 years old at a summer camp and continued when I returned home with the help of my family members.

I believe every piece of jewelry should have a special meaning behind it whether it's your wedding ring or a fun piece of jewelry from an exotic vacation spot. That is probably why I like creating with vintage pieces. Can you imagine what fabulous person wore those pearl earring in the 50's? In addition buying vintage jewelry and repurposing it is a great way to go green. I try to be green in every way I can and am learning every day new tricks to help preserve our world. Wherever possible I buy from companies who have the same philosophy.

Enjoy!
