Hello and thanks for stopping by!

I live and work out of my home here in Richmond Virginia but I was born in New England and grew up just outside of Boston, Massachusetts. Ever since I can remember, I have had a love for the natural world and for all things old-fashioned. I began creating jewelry for myself at an early age and, out of my innate need to not let anything go to waste (a trait I shared with my Dad), I started incorporating found objects from nature and unusual pieces with a past life into my jewelry designs.

Hello and thanks for stopping by!

I live and work out of my home here in Richmond Virginia but I was born in New England and grew up just outside of Boston, Massachusetts. Ever since I can remember, I have had a love for the natural world and for all things old-fashioned. I began creating jewelry for myself at an early age and, out of my innate need to not let anything go to waste (a trait I shared with my Dad), I started incorporating found objects from nature and unusual pieces with a past life into my jewelry designs.

After living and working in the seaside town of Provincetown, Massachusetts, my free spiritedness led me to Richmond where I started pursuing my love of antiques and vintage clothing. My humble beginnings include "picking" for local shops, selling at flea markets, and sharing a tiny retail space with a friend. Eventually, I joined forces with my self-proclaimed soul sister and founder of a shop called Urban Artifacts. Over the next 10 years we combined our talents for mixing antiques and vintage clothing with local art and handmade goods creating a fun shopping destination for both Richmonders and out of towners alike.

Since the closing of Urban Artifacts in 2008, I have had more time to focus on my jewelry and to travel a bit, including a trip Italy where I scoured the countryside picking up beads, keys and other Italian "treasures" to incorporate into my designs. I now sell my jewels at various open air markets and craft shows around the state and here on Etsy.
