Gemstones. Bold. Inventive. Eclectic. Bohemian…and Always One-of-a-Kind.

I walked into my first bead store in Ashland, Oregon, in 2009. I walked out with my first strand of beads…aquamarine to be precise…and I've been in love with stones ever since. I can spend hours looking for the perfect beads, it's a hunt I love and treasure. My designs are as organic and unique as the natural stones I work with, and each piece has characteristics all its own. Handcrafting one of a kind jewelry is both exhilarating and challenging; it allows me to truly explore the depths of my creativity. Being a self-taught tinkerer allows me to make my own rules in design.

I work primarily in 3 main styles: weaving jewels and gemstones, electroforming nature, and wood working. My signature work is handwoven gemstones in an array of designs that I have recently transformed into woven wall hanging as well.

I'm lucky to enjoy so many variations of art and beauty in all aspects of my life. I strive to surround myself with beauty. I seek it everywhere I go. I collect branches, rocks & plants, and garden all summer long. It's an eclectic bohemian life and I wouldn't trade it for anything. In the fall of 2016 I sold my house in Indianapolis. I relinquished the majority of my possessions, bought a truck, packed it with only the "things" that mattered most to me. I moved my daughter, Iris, dog, Clover, and cat, Romy, to the North Coast of California where the Redwoods meet the coast. I finally made the move to being a full time jewelry designer and part time gardener.

Loving what I do allows me to create with love. In turn I end up falling in love with each piece of jewelry I create. It's a magical feeling…and it's an honor to share that with the world.
