Nouveau-Tique began with the simple idea of upcycling jewelry and supplies like vintage brooches, tapestry fabric, beads and jewelry discovered in antique/resale/thrift shops and at estate sales. I love mixing the old with the new, and the idea of taking items that were once treasured but now are unwanted or broken and creating new pieces out of them really appeals to me.

My business has grown from that idea, now with brand new pieces as well as vintage, and a wide selection of jeweled wire trees. I design custom wedding cake toppers, table centerpieces, bridal jewelry and hair vines, birthstone jewelry and sculptures, dining, home and office decor…

I have had 9 of my original designs featured on TV, including:

- The Vampire Diaries: Oxblood Trapeze Necklace worn by the character Bonnie Bennett played by Kat Graham on Season 8 Episode 6 "Detoured on Some Random Backwoods Path to Hell" which first aired on December 2, 2016.
- The Vampire Diaries: Mystic Falls Swarovski Pearl Necklace worn by the character Bonnie Bennett played by Kat Graham on Season 5 Episode 19 "Man on Fire" which first aired on April 24, 2014.
- Jane the Virgin: Rose Gold Swarovski Peal Earrings worn on Season 3 Episode 5 (Chapter 49) and Episode 6 (Chapter 50) of "Jane the Virgin" first airing on November 14 and November 21, 2016 on The CW, by the Emmy winning actress Gina Rodriguez as Jane.
- Quantico: Antique Brass Spike Necklace worn by the character Lydia Bates played by Tracy Ifeachor on Quantico, Season 2 Episode 1 "Kudove" which first aired on September 25, 2016.
- Baby Daddy: Yellow Swarovski Pearl Bar Pendant Necklace worn by the character Riley played by Chelsea Kane, Season 5 Episode 3, first airing on February 17, 2016 on Freeform (formerly ABC Family).
- Hart of Dixie: Swarovski Pearl Triangle Necklace worn by the character Lily Anne Lonergan played by Amy Ferguson on Season 3 Episode 16 "Carrying your Love with Me" which first aired on April 4, 2014.

I have created one of a kind birthstone trees for mothers and grandmothers, trees for baby showers, business card holders for first jobs and special events, very special trees for terminally ill family members, and many wedding cake toppers and centerpieces. Each piece is created with much love and care and shaped until it is perfect, and each tree seems to take on its own unique shape as I create it, making each one special and truly unique.

One of my favorite projects was when a co-worker came to me with a bag of beads - a broken necklace that had belonged to her grandmother - and asked if I could make her something out of it. I created two bracelets and two pairs of earrings from those beads - one set for her and one for her mother. She got tears in her eyes when I gave them to her, not expecting two, and was so happy that they could now wear and enjoy these pieces to remember a wonderful woman who meant so much to both of them.

I feel so honored to be able to touch other peoples' lives with my art - to give someone their perfect cake topper or centerpieces, a one of a kind piece of art or jewelry to treasure, perhaps bring a small bit of peace or happiness amidst some sorrow, or discover the joy of receiving such an unexpected and special gift. I have so many beautiful messages that I have received from my customers and I treasure them all. I love what I do :)
