Here you will find one of a kind original jewelry, vintage inspired pieces, recycled / upcycled pieces, and classic designs that you’ll be able to wear for years to come! I love working with found objects, obsolete machinery and natural mediums – including a vast variety of beautiful stones and pearls - and finding ways to make jewelry that is good for dressing up or down.
