Savannah is a lovely and inspiring city. You really should visit if you ever have the opportunity :)

Ultimately it all boils down to making things that make other people happy :)

Hi! Here it is in a nutshell:
I like making things. I've always liked making things. If those things make me happy, great! If those things make *you* happy, that's even better!

I've been creating jewelry since 2002, and am excited to be able to do something I love and at the same time create jewelry that will enrich the lives of my customers! My stamped message jewelry has been popular for people of all stages of life and situations. Hearing stories from my customers about what their jewelry means to them makes me feel honored that I can use my talents and craft in a way that resonates with those who wear it.

If you want to know a little bit more....

I received my BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2002 (majoring in the 'Metals and Jewerly' program.) Following college, I continue to enjoy taking technique specific classes and workshops to enhance my skill base.

My inspirations come from everyday life, as I seek to transform the beauty I find into the permanence of metal and stone. The designs are often uplifting with positive messages in the hopes that they can make the world a little bit brighter.

I fabricate with metal and also do some glass enameling on copper. In 2010, I began to introduce recycled silverplate and sterling flatware into my designs. I love the history that the flatware has. These new pieces have a combination of elements: enamel, gemstones, and silver metalwork.
Bringing new life to the flatware, while at the same time imparting a tangible history to the resulting jewelry design, is exciting!

I would like my impact on the world and those around me to at minimum be a smile.

I create my jewelry in Savannah, GA, with my dogs, cats, and chickens assisting as best they can :)
