As a struggling and impoverished university student back in the 1990's I spent a great deal of time wishing for that which I could not yet afford. Being a child born under the Libra constellation, most of these things consisted of sparkling beautiful fashionable things.

Wasabihot was born during 2011 when I was unable to work due to illness but since returning to work in February 2012, I have kept making jewelry going from strength to strength. Making Jewelry has become a creative outlet for me and provides me with great therapeutic solace, particularly during the past two years when I have faced the most traumatic and difficult challenges of my life.

I live, think and dream jewelry & statement necklaces are my passion. I source materials and inspiration from around the world and draw on the endless ideas from the recesses of my mind.

Thank you for taking the time to read about my story and I hope that you enjoy looking at my pieces.
