Welcome to my shop. Each piece is handcrafted me in my studio, not far from the rocky shores of the Maine coast. You will find my work is earthy and rustic. There is a sense of warmth and comfort when you wear them. It is not flawless which adds to the beauty of handmade. I love the beautiful patina that develops with time worn.

Love these earrings! They are a little heavy but able to be worn all day. They are simple and unique! Great craftsmanship and great service.

About

Earthy, warm and rustic. Everyday jewelry that soothes the soul.

I am a native of the coast of Maine. With the inspiration of my mother and grandmother, who were both painters of fine art, it was no surprise that I gravitated toward a life in the arts. I painted at first, though not on canvas like my mother and grandmother. I painted furniture and murals, both commercial and residential, and later added floorcloths into the mix.
As time passed, my quest to create continued. This quest led me to MECA in Portland, ME, to take a jewelry & metalsmithing class. I wanted to find ways to use the sea glass and beach stone I had been collecting since I was a young girl. I had no idea this would change my life forever. It was here, in the 3 hours of my first class, that I found my passion..... a crazy love for metals. I find their versatility, the tones, textures and patinas you can create, incredibly intriguing. No piece is completely planned out. Sometimes I let the metal or salvaged find speak to me and let the piece develop as I work. Now, years later, I am embracing this passion full time in my home studio. Most days, that is where you will find me....at my bench, surrounded by a torch and tools, hammering out new designs and mixing metals with reclaimed leather, torch fired enamels and found objects. It soothes my soul.
Today, I live on the seacoast with my family, never having wandered far from the rocky shores of Maine.

    Working with metals is my passion. I am a lover of texture. I draw inspiration from the weathered, the worn, the raw. My mixed metal & torch fired enamel jewelry is warm, rustic & substantial, handcrafted to withstand the test of time.
