The jewelry I create is crafted from a bezel made from silver, while inside, a little collage tells a story. A layer of clear resin is poured on top and smoothed to enhance and protect the piece. I make each piece by hand, from start to finish. I fabricate all the metal,paint and collage the inlay part,take care of the resin and make sure it's really clear. I do not have any assistance of any kind, and I like it that way. I take great care in the details and finishing. I want you to love your piece of jewelry and cherish it for a lifetime. I love collaborating with clients. If you want a custom piece, or have a special color request, feel free to contact me.

Most customers like to think my jewelry is happy and joyful, and so Happy Art is the name of the studio.
