Hi friends :)

Welcome to Bohemian Tribe!

When I'm not teaching yoga or working at my restaurant job, I like to sit down and relax with some cool jams, a big glass of coconut water (or coffee:), and go into a deep jewelry-making meditation. When the mood is right, I like to drift off into my creative zone for hours on end. The act of creating and making things with my hands is so satisfying,... it's a way letting my Creative Energy flow ~ and finding expression through color and form.
Sometimes I will be listening to African drum beats or Hawaiian ukulele, and the music will inspire a more colorful palate of mixed stones together to create some rather funky pieces! Other times, I will play some Indian music or Native American flute, which creates a more meditative jewelry-making process…

Welcome to Bohemian Tribe!

When the mood is right, I like to drift off into my creative zone for hours on end.

Sometimes I will be listening to African drum beats or Hawaiian ukulele, and the music will inspire a more colorful palate of mixed stones together to create some rather funky pieces! Other times, I will play some Indian music or Native American flute, which creates a more meditative jewelry-making process. The music is the backdrop for me, it inspires the mood of creativity and expression... and sometimes I just have to get up and DANCE around my tiny studio for a few moments to let all the energy out! HA!

The jewelry pieces I create are a collection of unique and one-of-a-kind handmade items. I like to keep mixing it up; with new materials and stones, different techniques and methods of making the pieces.

I source all my stones and most of my materials locally in San Diego. But many of the vendors I buy from are originally from other countries, and they travel back home to bring these gorgeous ethnic beads and pendants back here to sell at local markets and fairs. The connections I make with the merchants is quite memorable- each has a story of their own to share, and it enriches the exchange tenfold. I love the fact that I get to create jewelry with such beautiful beads that came from far away lands. For me, it symbolizes that beauty is universal, and that we are all connected in some way :)

I hope that through my jewelry pieces, I can also bring beauty and happiness to someone else out there, and share inspiration through my creativity.

Thanks for checking out my shop! :)

*Oh, and if you live in San Diego and want to see my work in person, just send me a convo and I'll keep you posted for future art walks, festivals, and events that I'll have a booth at!

Good vibes everywhere :D
