These delicate little leaves fall so perfectly when you wear them, with a little dangle sway, especially with the extra leaf on the middle one. I love this necklace! Thank you!

This beautiful necklace goes with so much of my wardrobe as well as a metal red flower ring I bought that looks almost identical! Love it! Thank you!

About

Embrace color and have more fun.

In jewelry, as in life, balance is key - playful yet elegant, distinctive yet wearable, well-crafted yet affordable. I love creating colorful anodized aluminum and silver jewelry that helps you celebrate your day simply by wearing it.

I took my first jewelry class in High School. I loved working with metal and went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts from Humboldt State University in Northern California. There I learned the importance of strong design and craftsmanship and it's where I learned how to anodize aluminum. When I realized that I could play with color and metal at the same time, I was hooked for good.

While primarily a jeweler, I also create indoor wall sculptures featuring the luminous colors of anodized aluminum and copper.

So, what is anodized aluminum?
Anodizing is a three step process that allows me to custom dye the metal a wide range of luminous colors. It also strengthens and protects the surface. It does not tarnish or rub off.

Additional policies and FAQs
CUSTOM ORDERS
If you are in love with one of my piece but wish it came in a different color, I can probably make that happen. Additional coast may apply.

PRODUCT CARE
Anodized aluminum requires no special care. It will not tarnish.
To remove tarnish that naturally forms on silver you can use any product that specifically says it is safe for anodized aluminum because abrasive polishing products will dull its hand-dyed finish. Follow the directions on the product, making sure to clean it off completely and dry thoroughly. Store in an airtight container to slow future tarnishing.
