Lumineux Jewelry's Profile

About

Welcome to Lumineux Jewelry!

Originally from Seattle, I studied jewelry fabrication at North Seattle Community College and later interned for jewelers Kristin Hanson and Nancy Edwards, while also working as a gallery assistant in Fine Jewelry and Watches at Christie's in NYC.

Most recently I lived in the midwest where I completed a graduate degree in social sciences. Though sad to leave both places behind, I am happy to be back home in Seattle and working on jewelry out of my Ballard studio.

I am inspired by simple but intricate adornment, particularly ancient jewelry, jewelry as a cultural artifact and the pre-historic tradition of human adornment. I find beauty in pieces unique in design from functional to complex.

I am inspired by simple but intricate adornment, particularly ancient jewelry, jewelry as a cultural artifact and the pre-historic tradition of human adornment. I find beauty in pieces unique in design from functional to complex.

The strength, fluidity, varied rich tones and reflective qualities of metal is what makes jewelry exciting, limitless and unique as functional art.

Lumineux Jewelry is inspired by the mix of metal and gemstones and their abilities to bend, reflect and create light. Each piece integrates unique elements and influence from my travels around the U.S. and world.

With the brilliance of sparkling semi-precious gemstones and rich hues of raw minerals, rare & simple stones, purity of sterling silver and gold-fill and detail of organic-inspired elements, each piece is hand-crafted with care and one of a kind.

Happy shopping!

Dans les rêves, on ne voit jamais le soleil, bien qu'on ait souvent la perception d'une clarté beaucoup plus vive.
Les objets et les corps sont lumineux par eux-mêmes.

In dreams, one never sees the sun. But one often perceives a light that is much more alive.
Objects and bodies radiate on their own.
