About

Welcome to the world of Beetle Back! I create all the pieces you will find here in Beetle Back Basics as well as in my other shop Beetle Back Arts http://www.beetlebackarts.etsy.com. You can also find me on Facebook as Beetle Back Arts.

I started out as a kid loving to string beads and then learned basic metalsmithing when I was 14 going to middle school in a small Wisconsin town. I never lost my love of beads and color, and after moving to Los Angeles in 2007 I was able to pick up and develop my metalsmithing skills.

In every job I have had I always had a need to be hands on...and ultimately that has led me back to literally working with my hands and rediscovering my passion: JEWELRY! I love working with metal and playing with fire (my torch that is).

I have a BA in art history, so I am a bit of a museum…

I have a BA in art history, so I am a bit of a museum nerd, and love to travel to explore the world's art. Many pieces I create have been inspired by history and trips to new places.

I think jewelry should be fun, expressive and well made. I like unique and solid pieces of jewelry that make a statement on their own. I love trying new designs and taking on challenges, so if you are looking for a custom jewelry designer, I'm your gal.

I hope you enjoy walking through the halls of Beetle Back, and be sure to send me a convo to let me know what you think. I love getting feedback!
