I hope to make jewelry that reflects my own tastes, that is enjoyable to wear, and that is admired by many. I hope to make origami mobiles that bless the homes they hang in, bringing peace and beauty to the surroundings. I aspire to create wedding and shower decor that is simple but delightful and that will be taken home as tokens to be kept in the homes of guests.
