I come from a family of crafters and seamstresses. It was only natural that, as a young child, I would be influenced by all the things around me that were made by hand, and be inspired to learn a little myself.

I actually made my first few pairs of earrings when I was about 11 or 12. In hind sight, they were hideous (seriously, they were made from sequins, pom-pom balls, and ribbon).

It wasn't until 2006 that I really dived into making jewelry on a regular basis, and it has been my favorite craft ever since. I still dabble in some other things, but jewelry is what I'm most passionate about. For instance, I love to watch historical era shows and movies, and be inspired by the costumes and jewels. In turn, I use that inspiration to help create my designs.

Nothing makes me happier than knowing my customers are happy with their new jewelry and accessories. Please let me know if I can ever design something special just for you. :)
