I turned my hobby into a part-time job when I moved to North Florida and was able to place my work in several local shops. I frequently get feedback from customers and love to hear how much they enjoy my work. You can also find my pieces in and around Orlando, FL.

Thank you for your interest in my shop, I'd love to hear from you and to create your new favorite piece of jewelry!
