I love to create, it has always been something that's just been 'in my blood'. I come from a long line of seamstresses and quilters but have found myself branching out in other mediums and now I am loving creating jewelry.

I started jewelry making for the second time (first was in jr. high!) after I had my second son when my body was kind of out of control and I wasn't feeling good about myself. Then I found some pearls I fell in LOVE with and couldn't resist buying figuring I could makes something out of it. It all began from there. I think I fell in love with it because you can wear earrings and necklaces regardless of your size, shape, age. Jewelry is timeless. It is unique. And for me it was one of the things that helped me begin to feel beautiful again.

Primarily I work with fine gemstones, freshwater pearls, sterling silver, and 14k goldfill (along with some brass). I use only the finest quality materials making each piece in my home studio.

Having my own business making jewelry is something I never dreamed I would be doing but I am loving it. One of my favorite things is seeing someone I know wear a piece of jewelry I made. I still can't believe it sometimes!
