About

My Salvation Jewelry was born from the midst of a Roller Derby Injury back in 2009. For those of you who know a derby girl or are one you understand the passion involved. While recuperating from a separated shoulder I had to find something to pass the time away from the track…..This was it. It has just escalated through the years. I have found another passion.


I am in awe of the beauty of mother nature and fascinated with discarded treasures and vintage finds. I combine taxidermy, unusual, salvaged and sometimes mis-matched items to create modern tribal, southwestern , religious inspired, and ooak looks. I am very spiritual and enjoy reading about lore, myths, fairies, gods, goddesses and the occult. I find inspiration everywhere.

Over the past year and a half I have been studying and practicing lost wax casting. I have done many replica castings of insects and bones. I hope to be able to make my hand made castings available soon. I have recently had some ides brought to fruition with the help of a very talented artist and friend Dominic Ciofi and a wonderful USA based casting company!

I recently had the pleasure of creating a collection for an emerging sustainable fashion brand scheduled to launch this Fall.

I just began studying metal smithing with a very talented designer and teacher here in Pittsburgh and hope to continue to grow my line of work with hand forged pieces.

I am open to custom orders and enjoy messages from my customers. I hope you find what are looking for here at my little shop or that I have inspired you in some way.
