These are the simple treasures from New York's History. We love to dig up what Old New York has left behind.

I've been making jewelry since the late 1980s.
Studied fashion and jewelry design at FIT and finished with an Art degree at Hunter college.
Living in NY has given me lots of opportunities to hone my craft by self taught techniques and sold my first creations in the streets of New York City.
Got my experience selling in high end shops in the 2000s, and realized it was the competitive side of creativity. It wasn't for me.
I went on selling at smaller venues and participated in the Union Square Holiday Market 10 years ago and still going.
I got together with Scott Jordan, a legendary NY digger/artifact artist and was my long time friend at Greenflea, the longest running Flea market in NYC.
Together we explore the past by digging up Old New York.
We have a lot of fun!
