I am a Central PA native and have just recently moved to Indiana. My background and training is in Fashion Design. I designed custom wedding gowns, headpieces and millinery in a home studio for 8 years before entering the retail world of bridal as a buyer and store manager.

I began designing bridal veils for my college roommates as soon as I graduated from college. That has continued to be my strongest interest in my dressmaking and millinery career.

Each veil is lovingly packaged for shipment in acid free tissue, with sample tulle so that its bride can carefully test her iron before pressing. Instructions for care are also included.

I started designing jewelry as accessories to my bridal headpieces in 1999. There was a "hole" in the market place for "bridge" jewelry of quality that brides and their bridesmaids would want to wear beyond the wedding day. My designs mix formal elements with informal; using Freshwater Pearls and Swarovski Crystal combined with Sterling Silver, Shell and unique Gemstones.
