About

I grew up in a museum. At least, that is what relatives and friends used to say about my family’s home. The house was full of fabulous interesting items, amassed through the years. Truly it was a magical visual atmosphere, which allowed for the viewer’s imagination to bubble forth. Thus was nurtured my passion for collecting—holding on to heirlooms and scouring markets of all sorts for whatever held my fancy at the time. Interests change through the years, as do residences; the time comes to part with stuff (no other word will do). My Etsy shop contains many of these cherished treasures and trinkets, ready and waiting to find a new home.

I love to create one-of-a-kind jewelry using a combination of the old and the new. Loving the originality of giving new life to bits of found objects is what drives me.
