One of my first childhood memories of gorgeous jewelry is of a beautiful Victorian ring with a big dark amethyst faceted glass stone set in detailed burnished brass, with flowers and filigree-- hanging at the bottom of a light pull in my bedroom closet. My mother hung it there in a celebration of beauty, so I could enjoy it over and over.
My inspiration comes from ferns, colorful fabrics, sunlight and soaps, antiques, bamboo and horses and my best friends' eyes that are the colors of the Gulf of Mexico. I work in a studio in my home, and my work is also sold in a shop in historic downtown Bainbridge (Sharon House Antiques) as well as here on Etsy.
I take pleasure in every aspect of my work including interacting with my customers! I love the atmosphere that's been created here on Etsy, both for buying and for selling.
