Since then I was always looking for an outlet that I can utilize my skills in illustration, graphic design and craft making. About a year ago, I incidentally stumbled upon jewelry design and I realized I should give to serious try. In beginning of the 2012, I decided to venture into accessory design business and here I am: happily creating, designing and building my brand.

What inspires me can be a street cat to random people to movie lines l love. That makes my creative process intuitive and truly delightful. I hope my products reflect my passion for art and craft and put a smile on your face!
