About

I am a twenty-something, small-town girl who grew up with big dreams and busy hands. I have always been creating and my dad has always called me an artist. I might not have been the best at drawing or painting, but making "things" has been my life forte.

Being a jewelry designer was actually a dream of mine that I didn't take seriously for a very long time (or so it seemed). I didn't even know if I'd be good at it, but always inspired by beautiful jewelry that I would see out and about, and all the designs I had swimming around in my head, I finally decided to do something about it. I started with glass and crystal and lesser metals because they are considerably less costly than gemstones.

I now work exclusively with fine gemstones and metals and am so excited to be able to represent my jewelry here on Etsy. This dream helps me to fulfill another and the most important to me: to be the best mother I can to my lovely daughter, who is my greatest masterpiece. It is so important for me to be present in her life, the way a traditonal job doesn't allow. So in supporting my shop by purchasing my jeweled creations, you are helping me to fulfill that need as well.

On the personal side, I live in Portland, Oregon. I've traveled much and lived outside of my home state, but even though it can rain a lot, I will always live here. I love it here.

I have an extraordinary 5 year old daughter named Eva who is the love of my life. She loves to be my helper in all my endeavors, but especially the one where we get to play with sparkly things. She is also an artist and I'm curious and excited to see her future creations.
