About

I am a jewelry artist who creates inside of a 20' yurt on an organic seed farm nestled against the Coast Range mountains in the Los Padres National Forest of Southern California.

What is a yurt? Think of a teepee, but different. Yurts have been used for thousands of years and are the traditional nomadic homes of Mongolia and the surrounding areas. Traditionally, these nomadic people took their homes with them as they traveled, taking them down and re-building them on-the-go.. Yurts are beautiful and portable eco-structures that are composed of a circular lattice frame covered with felt or fabric. They typically have wooden floors and a glass center dome. My yurt workshop is warmed with a Norwegian wood-fired stove and I love to sit at my bench sipping green tea by the fire while listening to all the amazing wildlife that frequents our farm and the surrounding mountains: owls, coyotes,…

My yurt workshop is warmed with a Norwegian wood-fired stove and I love to sit at my bench sipping green tea by the fire while listening to all the amazing wildlife that frequents our farm and the surrounding mountains: owls, coyotes, foxes, deer, mountain lions, bobcats, bears, snakes, and even wild peacocks! Although this "off-the-grid" lifestyle isn't easy or for the pampered, the walls between nature and humans are very thin and this provides constant inspiration and wonder.

I create unusual and enchanting jewelry inspired by myth, animals, and a life lived close to nature. I design for the bohemian soul that is wild and free: she who loves the magic of the earth, can hear the songs inside of stones, and who wears the stories or her journey on her body like an ancient tribal queen. Each piece is handcrafted with intense love and focus from the highest quality materials to create truly unique and storied treasures that will last a lifetime.

Come inside, be wild with me. Say that you are ancient.
