Be in Love with Your Life. Every Minute of It - Jack Kerouac

Hello!

I am an American artist living in Florence, Italy specializing in Polymer Clay Jewelry. Born in New York and raised in Southern California, I moved to Florence many years ago and have been inspired by this amazing city every day since.
 
For as long as I can remember, I've been fascinated with making things with my hands. I get that from my mother. She decorated the kind of cakes that make you regret cutting into them and wraps the kinds of gifts that you don't want to open for fear of ruining the packaging. Each ribbon tied perfectly, every corner folded immaculately. She taught me how to tie the perfect bow and how important even the smallest details can be. She always supplied me with crafty materials for creating whatever came to mind and I have been making art in one way or another my entire life. Combining art and fashion is something that has come naturally to me as I have always been surrounded by both. 

Growing up, my aunt had the most amazing closet full of party dresses, enviable handbags and sparkly jewelry. Everything was kept in perfect condition in hat boxes and the drawers were lined with gloves of every color. My sister and I would play dress-up in her wardrobe for hours, while our aunt watched on, laughing and loving every minute of it. My personal favorite was her jewelry box, which was full of goodies and treasures. My aunt and her impeccable fashion sense and love for jewelry has inspired me in more ways than one!

I believe in bold colors, love at first sight, following your dreams, and that rainy Sunday’s are meant for P.J’s. I trust that everything happens for a reason, that there is always a bright side and that we can do anything we set our minds to.

If you're ever in Florence be sure to stop by my studio in Via dello Sprone 9/11r

Hello and Welcome!

The goal of my work is to merge art and fashion and create one-of-a-kind pieces that make a statement and express confidence. I consider myself to be an artist and for me making jewelry is like creating a sculpture that uses the body as its 'pedestal' so to speak. I am also obsessed with color and the way it effects our mood, our personality and the way different colors change and effect various skin tones, therefore, I am devoted to experimenting with unusual combination's and creating pieces that make the wearer truly unique.

The main material that I use in my work is polymer clay. I find the versatility and flexibility of the material, as well as the endless possibilities it offers to be irresistible. I also love that I am able to manipulate it and create anything that I can imagine, meaning that I do not have to rely on pre-made art or jewelry making materials, but rather I get to create these elements myself.

My designs are created with the strong, confidant, outspoken woman in mind. She is style conscience but busy and likes statement pieces that complete her look without having to over-think her accessories. Her easy wardrobe is turned extraordinary with great accessories.

Returns and exchange details
If an item is damaged or broken due to shipping I am more than happy to replace it. If you could just send me a quick photo of the damage that would be great, that way I can assess if its worth it for you send it back to me for repair (I will of course reimburse the cost of shipment) or if it makes more sense for me to make you a new piece. However, because all of my pieces are one of a kind and made by hand, I will not be able to make the exact same piece but I can do my best to make something as close as possible.

Polymer clay is very durable and easy to care for. To clean your jewelry a damp cloth or Q-tip can be used to wipe items down. You can also use a clean dry paintbrush to remove dust and reaching small crevices. Polymer clay is waterproof, however, I usually do not recommend wearing your jewelry while doing things like washing dishes or showering.
