I discovered I had an affinity for fabricating jewelry back in 2000 when I took an introductory metals course at the University of Washington and fell in love. I practically lived in our school studio, working until the wee hours of the night while exploring this wondrous art form. In 2003 I earned a Bachelors Degree in Metal and Jewelry Fabrication and launched my first collection.

All of the materials used are mined worldwide and sourced from domestic suppliers who share the same passion for ethical business and trade practices as well as environmentally responsible mining practices.

I work with recycled sterling silver, karat gold, palladium and platinum and hand pick every stone for their unique one of a kind characteristics. Most of my gemstone are cut by hand from a local lapidary artist who applies my signature Dahlia and pavilion facets.

I like thinking about jewelry and creating jewelry for the expression more than as a simple accessory. Across the globe over thousands of years, jewelry has been worn as art that adorns the body expressing history, culture, tradition, hope and love. With that rich history as inspiration, I meticulous craft every piece of jewelry is created for lasting integrity and heirloom quality. A huge inspiration of mine is knowing that people will treasure their jewelry and eventually pass it on from generation to generation.

Each piece of jewelry is made entirely by hand one piece at a time in my Seattle studio.

My designs are a tribute to the women who wear them. Strong, confidant and feminine... Uniquely you.
