About

As a girl there were few things I loved more than running my fingers through vintage necklaces passed down from my loving grandmothers. Things that shimmered and sparkled always caught my eye. As I grew, I began disassembling them and making my own creations.

When I was fourteen, I took my first metal-smithing class, and with one ignition of a blowtorch I had found my path in life. I was fortunate to attend one out of only ten public high schools in the country with an advanced art program. After high school, I attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan and graduated with a degree in jewelry and gems.

When I was fourteen, I took my first metal-smithing class, and with one ignition of a blowtorch I had found my path in life. I was fortunate to attend one out of only ten public high schools in the country with an advanced art program. After high school, I attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan and graduated with a degree in jewelry and gems.

After college, I mastered the technique of cloisonné enamel and developd my signature medium of miniature paintings created from layers of high fired powdered glass framed in precious metal settings. One of my first creations was an evil eye pendant. Twenty-five years later, my evil eyes remain one of my most popular (and imitated) lines.

All of my work is inspired by my mother and her battle with cancer. Like those necklaces passed down through the generations, her memory is my muse.

My jewelry is all handmade in my home studio in western Colorado.

I have two types of jewelry in my shop. Limited one of a kind production which are made to order and shipped usually within the same week and one of a kind. Please keep in mind the limited one of a kind production pieces will vary slightly from the photo but will be just as beautiful. This is what makes each of my pieces one of a kind as they are handmade and no two are identical.
