Creativity is in my genes. Many thanks to my wonderfully inspiring family for their influences of architectural and textile design to fine art and music. They encompassed many arts with a strong passion in handcrafting. They wanted more from life!

I use a variety of techniques from wire wrapping to knotting, micro-macrame' & crochet to give traditional jewelry a fresh update. My designs are earthy, rustic and beach inspired with a touch of sparkle...I call it 'beach glam meets modern bohemian'. My goal is to combine textures to create versatile jewelry to wear season to season. All pieces are designed, made, photographed, posted, described and shipped by me. I also participate in assorted art shows in the metro Detroit area. Stop by and say hello if you're in the area.

I'm happy to ship outside the United States. Please review my shipping profile. If your country is not listed I'll find out postage costs and give you a fair price.

Please allow 2-3 weeks for custom orders.

As always, feel free to contact me!
