When she moved to California to be with her husband, She fells in love with the scenery, culture, and the people. She gets her inspirations from many different sources including small and large, natural and man-made, living and inert. She never stops looking around her for innovative jewelry making ideas.

She believes that jewelry making is drawing, painting, design, sculpture, and handcraft all in one. She is very happy to use all of her experiences and background to create a small object, which represents various types of art and can be part of the person who is wearing it.

Her creations are reflections of her experiences, feelings, and her value to live, love, and laugh. Her hope is to share these with you through her jewelry.
