Hi and thanks for visiting!

I have been studying and making jewelry for just about 10 years now...wow...

Much of my current work is inspired by hardware and mechanical elements – those tiny details that hold our homes, our walls and essentially our lives together. From my point of view, screws, nails, nuts and bolts exist not only as utilitarian objects but also as these beautiful, precise and highly detailed elements of “structural bling” (as I lovingly refer to them as) that are so often overlooked in our everyday lives.

My hardware-inspired work aims to elevate these objects through manipulation of colors, surface finish and embellishment in order to draw attention to their subtle intricacies and allow both the wearer and the viewer to appreciate these “gems” in a completely different context.

I’ve spent the last few years working in the outdoor industry in product development and marketing and have just recently made the switch to full-time artist and maker. I am both extremely lucky and incredibly happy to have the opportunity to get up and work in my studio every single day. Life is good ☺

All of my jewelry is handcrafted in my Colorado studio…which definitely gets a little messy from time to time…

If I’m not in the studio, I can usually be found cooking my way through tastespotting.com (worth a visit if you’ve never been over there!), practicing my iphone food photography and spending good quality time with my amazingly talented husband and our favorite fuzzy friend – an 8 year old golden retriever.

Thanks for stopping by!
