Delicate, timeless, and meaningful jewelry, inspired by nature, literature, and art.
I grew up in Mexico City and Denver, Colorado and I currently reside in Austin, Texas. I began making jewelry as a hobby while I obtained my Art History degree. I signed up for a jewelry class for one of my art credits wanting to improve my skills. I quickly fell in love with the craft of metal-smithing and switched degrees. I love working with my hands and I love the ability to bring my designs to life. I now have a degree in jewelry design and I am certified in jewelry repair and fabrication. I also have a full time job at a high fashion jewelry retailer where I continue to learn about fashion, and the retail business. I have enjoyed living in Mexico and The United States and have been influenced by each countries unique ideas and culture. Since completing my degree I have enjoyed traveling back and forth between my two home countries in search of awe-inspiring ideas and unique components for my jewelry design business. I aim to provide my customers with creative, feminine and sentimental jewelry. I use sterling silver, fine silver, 14K to 18K gold, brass, bronze, copper and gold filled components as well as genuine gemstones all from reputable suppliers. My goal is to provide unique, high quality jewelry at an affordable price.
