{Hand-wrought jewelry. Wide-world inspired.}

I spent the greater part of a year doing volunteer construction work on educational centers in Brooklyn and Queens. One of the best times of my life, helping others, using my two hands, learning new tools and trades. Part of my work involved steel stud framing and the use of wire and sheet metal. I continue to work in construction regularly, so using this background (and my love of metal and stone) I decided to try my hand at building something on a much different scale- tiny constructions which I hope(!) are most wearable and lovely.

I am also heavily influenced by my extensive travels around the world. Besides my home here in Colorado (most beautiful of places!) I have lived for various lengths of time in Brooklyn Heights, Mexico, Belize, The Dominican Republic, and Bolivia. What a beautiful world,…

I am also heavily influenced by my extensive travels around the world. Besides my home here in Colorado (most beautiful of places!) I have lived for various lengths of time in Brooklyn Heights, Mexico, Belize, The Dominican Republic, and Bolivia. What a beautiful world, filled with beautiful people. Such sights to see!

This is my latest artistic outlet, but I have always been involved in the arts. I grew up working in the family small business painting custom signs by hand, I have been part of a local Rocky Mountain Ballet Company for many years, I play the Ukulele (my super duper husband built me a spiffy one!), I can't get enough of design and photography.

All of my peices are unique due to the fact that as many components of my jewelry as possible are hand-wrought and forged by me. I try not to use anything pre-fabricated unless it utterly confounded me to make it personally. I only use a few hand tools, and I am completely self taught.

I hope you enjoy my shop, drop me a line, I would love to talk!

For my customers from other lands I am fluent in English and Spanish and will be able to understand you in Italian.

And lastly, by all means, have a great day!
