If you would like to know more about me and my design process please check out my blog:

I have pictures and sketches and descriptions and all sorts of stuff there about jewelry, design, and inspiration and I update it frequently with new projects.

I grew up in the northwest during the whole spotted owl kerfuffle and I consequently feel strongly about the environment and doing what I can to help preserve the health of the earth. All of the metals I use are 100% recycled and do not encourage destructive mining practices.
