Announcement   Tribal-Glam Jewelry & Laser-Cut Treasures
Like a hand stretched across a map, my designs gather inspiration from tribal craftswomen and traders from far reaches of the globe and combine these elements in surprising ways. I strive to create timelessly beautiful pieces that shimmer on stage, in the city -or by firelight.

JEWELRY
I use salvaged and handcrafted objects as components. Many elements come from deconstructed hardware, decorative art and festival adornment. I try to honor the essence of the original piece as I reconfigure the elements into something surprising and unique.

LASER CUT TREASURES
I have begun designing and fabricating a series of laser-cut luminaries and decorative objects for the home or the dance/yoga/design studio. These pieces feature tribal elements and iconography. I'm thrilled by the potential of this new hand-made-machine-assisted technique! Stay tuned to see how the work evolves!

If I could give 6 stars, I would! Olivia was patient, communicated well and extremely devoted to customer service. Unfortunately, the first pair she sent me got lost in the mail- but after due diligence of trying to track it down, she made another set and sent them to me. This time they arrived :) They are beautiful, well made and perfect for MULTIPLE uses. I will be purchasing from Olivia again. Thank you!!!!

Arrived literally the day I was hoping to wear it. ??? There was no connector/clasp (not sure it was to come with one) but this was easily solved with a necklace extender I had kicking around. Super fast shipping. Thank you!

About

Tribal-Glam Jewelry & Laser Cut Treasures

My studio travels with me while I am on tour with my dance projects. I mine the cities and villages that I visit for interesting ethnographic and antique jewelry, tools, bits and baubles and set up shop with fellow designers, in friends homes, or hotel rooms.

While its challenging to travel with supplies, it is worth it! The most exciting part of traveling w/ in tow, is that I often set up with fellow designers- in their studios sharing ideas, history, material management, muses, and process.

A reciprocal osmosis happens when I work and talk with other artists. We could talk or write, but actually making our work while talking and observing creates a much deeper and intuitive understanding of our work, and fuels the fires.

A special thanks to these incredible designers, teachers and all around brilliant artisans! Check out their work- Truly Stunning
