A Passion Unfolding

Since I was little anything artistic intrigued me. I was always fascinated by bright colors, nature, abstract objects, brightly patterned clothing. Just anything beautiful. Moving to France finally backed me into a corner and forced out my inner artist! Just graduating from college with a degree in Geography, I met my husband, who is French. Before there was time for a blink, my feet were on French soil, and at the time I could barely form a simple French sentence. In order to have something to do, I started creating jewelry which progressed into sculpting in clay, painting and sanding metals, and even the occasional soldering and hammering. Two years later, here I am, doing this full time while occasionally teaching an online class in polymer clay.

My inspiration comes from many things including nature walks, photography, films, or just concoctions in my head. Some pieces take longer than others, the longest being my garden series, which takes about 4-6 hours per piece.

My work incorporates the bliss of nature into something attainable, in order to give you, the buyer, a sense of serenity in the everyday hectic life. My process involves observance of nature, then capturing it in photography or sketches. I then take it to the studio where it can come to life in the form of jewelry. I choose and mix colors and then sculpt the design. Once finished, I choose the perfect metals and stones to fit each and every piece. Voila! They are ready to enrich your life and put a smile on your face each and every time you wear them.

I do not ship to Turkey. The customs is so strict that packages will not arrive without a police certificate. This normally entails a couple of hours of waiting in the station to fill out the form, then waiting three days to pick up the form. I apologize!
