From there to here.

The journey begins ... I worked for 20 years in the creative world as a graphic designer and art director. For part of that time, I worked for a nationally known magazine in their food and entertaining division and designed many cookbooks. I loved the people I worked with and those memories will be with me forever. It gets me every time when I see something I designed in a bookstore or library! I was proud of the work I was doing but I knew it was time to move on.

Through a series of "meant to be" events, I decided to leave the design world to do what I really love. I took a leap of faith and began my metalsmithing journey. I watched, learned and practiced until I was able to create the work I had envisioned. I had sketch books filled with jewelry designs and after much learning and practice, I was finally able to make the drawings come to life. During this process I created a home studio and it's truly my happy place!

A huge bonus to working out of my home is being there for my boys! I love being there when they get off the school bus and my jewelry business allows me the flexibility to be available whenever they need me. I feel grateful everyday to be able to do that. To have a supportive family makes all the difference!

The biggest thrill for me is reading my customers feedback. Getting to hear how much they're enjoying their new jewelry brings me so much joy! I love creating heirloom quality jewelry to cherish for years to come.

I continue to improve my craft with each passing day. I mean, what can be better than working with amazing tools and a little fire? It brings me so much joy to be able to live my dream as an artist.

Frequently asked questions
Tips for storing your sterling silver jewelry.

• Use an air-tight container. Any container can be used to store your silver, as long as it's air-tight. Zip-lock bags are great, but you can also find specialty jewelry bags to store them in.

• Keep in a cool, dark place. Sunlight, heat and moisture accelerate tarnishing. Be sure to keep your silver in a cool, dark place.

• Store pieces individually. Storing your pieces separately prevents any chance of jewelry scratching or tangling with each other.

Tips for maintaining your sterling silver's luster.

• Dry silver is happy silver. It's not a great idea to shower with your jewelry on, but once in a while isn't going to do any lasting damage. Just make sure to dry it after.

• Swimming Pool. Take your silver off. Chlorine is a pretty harsh chemical and can damage gemstones and discolor your silver.

• Hot Tub. Same idea as the swimming pool, but there's even more chlorine in the hot tub and the heat can accelerate the chemical reaction.

BONUS TIP: Chemicals, lotions and perfumes can also cause your jewelry to tarnish. Apply them first, let them dry, and then put your jewelry on. This alone can make a HUGE difference in your silver's luster.

Tips for cleaning your sterling silver jewelry.

• To do this, use a simple microfiber cloth or special jewelry cloth to clean your jewelry.

• Focus on maintaining long up-and-down strokes to clean the jewelry. Be sure to use different parts of the cloth to avoid spreading any tarnish. Do not use circular motions here, as it can actually make the tarnish or dirt worse. Be sure to avoid polishing any part of the jewelry that is intentionally oxidized. Do NOT use on gold. Cleaning cloths can do lasting damage to gold.

NOTE: If your jewelry contains gemstones of any kind, refrain from using chemical jewelry cleaner. It can permanently damage your stones.
