About

I've been collecting antique and ethnic jewelry for nearly 15 years now. My love for integrating pieces that have fallen apart with age or been lost to their original use is apparent is all I create. Moroccan, Tuareg, Rajasthani, Pakistani, Uzbekistani, Mali, Dong, Maio..... The list goes on and on. I am fascinated by cultures that have retained their traditions for 100's to 1000's of years and find comfort in the feel of stones as I take them off at the end of the day with my body warmth still on them. I also share a similar approach to the women of Africa and India, in that my savings account is usually worn somewhere on my body... at least, it's easier for me to tell myself that. I'd be hard pressed to sell those bracelets from Southern China... or Tibet... ;)
