About

It's My Passion

I have always loved designing and creating. In my first career I spent over two decades in the fashion business, focusing in the denim arena and always striving for more eco-friendly processes and programs. I was fortunate enough to travel the world and share knowledge that helped reduce the use of both natural and man made resources in the denim life cycle. Creating ever more outlandish looks on jeans while reducing the industry's footprint on the earth was my focus throughout my fashion career. After many satisfying years, I decided I needed something new and inspirational in my life. I still wanted to create something that was environmentally responsible, yet also personal that would have a connection to its owner, and Nubbin Ridge Creations was born. A self taught metalsmith, lots of trial and error went into what I now show with pride in my shop today.

Respect for the environment and nature in all its forms motivates me to reclaim and recycle the silver, copper and leather I use to create wearable works of art. I strive to use responsibly mined or repurposed stones whenever possible. Each piece I create holds a particular meaning for me at the time I'm making it and my two beloved rescue dogs in my shop photo are often by my side in the shop as I create my pieces.

I am inspired by the natural beauty I see around me every day. Living along the Cape Fear coastline, I am constantly aware of our impact on this fragile environment. I see daily the ever changing landscape, and so I am always looking to create pieces that marry environmental responsibility with wearable art that has meaning for the owner. To realize that goal, I use very little mechanical equipment. Each piece is created individually in true Artisan fashion. I melt, forge, shape, cut, wrap, file, stamp, patina and polish each piece by hand, so no two are exactly alike, no matter how many I may make.

My goal is for the wearers of my creations to feel a connection with them, much as I do as I am making them. That is my fondest hope as each piece leaves my shop for a wonderful new home. I humbly thank you for visiting and taking the time to find out more about me and my shop!.

Namaste!

    Moved by all things in nature, I seek to translate that into wearable art. Art that is environmentally responsible. A smaller footprint to leave behind. I hope to be so fortunate as to achieve that goal. I am inspired every day.

Welcome to Nubbin Ridge Creations, and thank you for visiting my shop! I hope you have enoyed your visit and will come back again and share us with friends and family.

Nubbin Ridge Creations was born of a love for nature and design. After 20+ years designing and developing denim products for the fashion industry it was time for a change. Disillusioned with the global migration, declining quality, and negative environmental impact of the industry, I became determined to put my love for nature and design into a new product that would be environmentally responsible. The desire was to create something that would make the wearer feel special and beautiful. I wanted my customers to feel that they were wearing an item that is personal to them. A fascination with all things natural led me to the gemstone market, and a new passion was ignited. Combining that with repurposed Leathers and Copper and recycled Sterling Silver made the eco-friendly dream come true for me.

Today I create my One of a Kind pieces in my workshop at our home on beautiful Oak Island, NC. The strong commitment to conservation and the environment that exists here along with the beauty of the sea and the ever-changing coastal landscape provides me unlimited inspiration for my designs.

I handcraft each piece from as many natural materials as possible. I use only natural stones and gemstones in my pieces. My leathers are hand cut and strapped from premium leather I rescue from the scrap heaps of leather manufacturers. I recycle copper and old silver and repurpose it into my jewelry.

Most gemstones are reputed to have strong metaphysical properties attached to them. At Nubbin Ridge, I strive to blend together stones that have been worn thorughout the ages to impart positive energies and give the wearer a sense of beauty and well-being. We hope you will wear and enjoy it with the same open mind, spirit, and love of life and nature that we put into each piece.

Namaste!
