About

When I was 7 years old, we lived in Granada, Spain in an old house that had wonderful Moroccan architecture and had one of the tunnels that had originally been used to sneak provisions into the Alhambra during the siege.

It has been wonderful to add the uniqueness to my jewelry that comes when you add your own handmade findings and metal accents to a piece of jewelry. Now that I have a home studio, I have a lot more flexibility to create the things that I love.

I guess if I were to be honest, I design for myself. If I'm going to Santa Fe soon to catch my brother in a show at the opera, I am probably working with turquoise and silver, if I have a board meeting or a fund raiser coming up, it is probably something simple and classic with gold and gemstones, but maybe with a little modern or bohemian twist.

I would love a chance to design something unique and special for the woman you are and the places you are going in life.
