Announcement    Thank you for taking the time to read about my work.
My pieces are all one of a kind and hand-crafted by me, and are made the old fashioned way. I strive to create all of my metal pieces in an eco-friendly manner, using recycled materials when possible; from hand and with no power tools.
I do not use modern jewelers chemicals in my treatment process, and instead I use basic safe household elements to assist me in protecting the metal during the smithing.

I love Mother Nature, and respect the environment during all of my processes.

My pieces take me a considerable amount of time, compared to using other modern jewelry techniques. Slight file marks and asymmetries are part of the hand-fashioned process.

Patience, Love & Uniqueness. Handmade Eco-Friendly Wearable Stone & Seashell Statement Art

My love of the ocean began as a little girl growing up on the ocean's shore in Ipswich, Massachusetts. As a young girl, I would take walks from my home to the beach to scour the sand, in attempt to build up my sea-glass collection (in which I proudly still have today). Many-a-art projects were fashioned with those little treasures I found on the seaside. From jewelry, to coasters.... my first apartment was lovely adorned with these handcrafted items.

Now that I am older (well, not that old!), I find myself still enjoying the craft of creating something unique and beautiful. In my home with my partner, son, and my rescue cats (from the animal shelter which I have been employed for many years), I have found that my hobby has turned into another love of mine.

My only hope is that my creations shed just a bit of additional beauty in this World.

--------

My Jewelry has all been made using hand tools only, no power tools. And using handcrafted chemical-free recipes to treat the silver and gold in the metalsmithing process. I really care about Mother Earth, and I hope you will see too that this reflects in my work.

You will find that much of what I pack and ship your items to you in is reused packing material. I strongly believe in giving items a second life, to help lessen the impact on our environment. Thank you for pardoning the appearance and understanding. And feel free to pay it forward and consider reusing the box and packing material which I have sent you!

Please understand that the shells which I use in my artwork are collected on the shores with no live inhabitants in them.

A portion of sales from some of my hand-crafted pieces will go towards an organization that helps preserve our waters and keep them clean; so future generations can enjoy them in all of their grand splendor!

    Just a girl born and raised by the sea. From shells, to landscape stones & unique ethically sourced gems; I adore everything Mother Nature provides. All of my silver wearable art is made by my hand, using eco friendly practices and hand tools only.
