About

One More Myth

"I've always been aware of the otherworld, of spirits that exist in that twilight place that lies in the corner of our eyes, of fairie and stranger things still that we spy only when we're not really paying attention to them, whispers and flickering shadows, here one moment, gone the instant we turn our heads for a closer look." —Charles De Lint, Onion Girl

In my work, I seek to offer inspired treasures which hold stories of myth and magic; each one has its own tale to tell. With Elements & Artifacts, my work is presented as collections with overarching themes—often exploring old myths and pantheons, symbols, fanciful oddities, patterns and motifs found in nature, the rise and fall of the seasons and the elements.

I love layered meanings. I want my customers to wear something that is distinctive and eye-catching on the surface, but which also holds a deeper personal meaning, even if it's as simple as a connection with a certain legend from childhood stories. I love observing the ebb and flow of the year and its seasons. I love the rise and fall of light between summer and winter. These things add a touch of magic to my life and, in turn, I pour that into my creations.

I am a fine artist turned graphic designer turned jewelry artist. I have been creating jewelry in some form or another since 2005 and Elements & Artifacts is entirely run by yours truly. I am mostly self-taught but own a vast library of jewelry textbooks which serve as reference (and the occasional sanity-check) for the more advanced techniques.

This is my heart and soul. I take no greater joy than from sharing my work with others. I hope my creations can bring you a touch of beauty and inspiration!
