About

Growing up in a small Northern Maine town, I often had the opportunity to hike in the woods and explore everything around me without fear or interruption. I often spent hours examining small items that I found like rocks, leaves, pine cones, anything. I also spent a lot of time in my father's dental lab where I became familiar with torches, tools, instruments, and different materials such as wax and plaster.

I've tried many different avenues to reach other career goals in my life. What I have found about myself throughout the years is that no matter what I do in my life, I am and will always be an artist. My creations are inspired by all the surrounding beauty that life & nature have to offer.
I enjoy using different materials and techniques to create a variety of wearable art and I always focus on detail and quality. I want anyone who owns a piece of my jewelry to be as happy wearing it, as I am creating it. Of course variations on duplicate pieces do occur, but I believe that's part of the beauty and appeal of handcrafted jewelry.
I hope to continue adding new and inspired pieces which everyone can enjoy wearing and giving to others.
