About

A self taught jewelry artist, I am also a working mom of two kids. My day job is as a zookeeper at the Philadelphia Zoo, where I work in the Kids' Zoo U exhibit. I studied art at the prestigious Academy of Fine Art in Philadelphia.

As a young person, long before career and children, I was actively involved in the arts: dance, music, visual arts, and more. Unfortunately, life interfered and all of that was pushed way to the side until I discovered beading! I find that I am able to compose and complete balanced, beautiful pieces while both parenting and after work. I have so much fun watching the beads complement one anothers' colour, shape, and style. It is equally exciting to imagine my jewelry adorning someone else.

I hope that you will enjoy my work, so please stop by my shop for a while and browse to your hearts content! Welcome…
