About

It was a trip to Martha's Vineyard about 12 years ago, when shopping in a local bead store, something 'sparkly' caught my eye. I thought, wow, this would make a great earring. I was immediately hooked. Born, raised and educated in New York City, with a background in Fine Arts, my eye has been trained to notice the smallest of details. Over the years, I have seen the pieces become more refined, classic in design, with a timeless quality. They are delicate, yet striking. Working with cubic zirconia, semi-precious stones and the finest Swarovski crystal, a touch of gold chain or vermeil becomes a simple and elegant pair of earrings.

I use the hooks as part of the design so that when YOU look in the mirror, the earrings are facing forward. There is a definite left and right. The jewelry is often repeated only once or twice, so you are buying a very unique handmade piece of jewelry.

Photography is also a passion and with the advent of the digital age, I use that same trained eye through the monitor of my digital camera, taking full advantage of color saturations, macro close-ups, sweeping landscapes and the full range of editing.

I trust that I will continue to grow as an artist and a jewelry maker with my personal style, so please, come back to my shop often!
