I hope you enjoy my jewelry as much as I enjoy making it. Don't forget to browse through my "Sold" section for additional ideas.

My pieces are crafted with sterling silver, goldfilled, and a vast assortment of precious and semi-precious gemstones and crystals.

Please note: All sterling silver and vermeil will tarnish over time. Simply restore the finish with gentle polishing.
