Franziska's Profile

Originally from the east coast, I've lived out west for many years....including the Pacific Northwest for about 25 years. The first time I came to the small island where I now live - I knew it was the home I'd always been searching for.

It's an incredibly satisfying feeling to help the right piece find the right home...and to know it will have a new life being worn, loved and cherished! I believe that fine jewelry should be affordable and I work hard to keep my prices as reasonable as possible, avoiding the very high markups that one usually sees. (I also am a big believer in wearing special pieces rather than keeping them locked up in a safe deposit box!) Recycling these special pieces of history helps environmentally, which I also feel strongly about.

Some of my other passions are animals, art, the environment, yoga, reading, music, hiking, organic/gluten free/dairy free/legume free cooking & baking.....
