Hi and thank you for taking the time to get to know a bit more about me.

Jewelry became a passion of mine some 12 years ago, when I wanted to find a gift for my boss at the time for being of great help in my early career.

My jewelry is handmade by me from various metals, such as sterling and fine silver, copper, bronze and 14 karat gold filled. I also use high quality gemstones and occationally glass. Recently I found a new passion: vintage glass beads.

I spend quite a lot of time searching for the right materials, both online and especially when I travel. I love travelling to far away countries and always go looking for nice gemstones or silver findings while I am abroad.

Another passion of mine is Cuban salsa. So addictive, I encourage you to try it and beware...you just might get hooked! :-)
