About

How it all began...

One thing that I've always enjoyed is watching my mom when she's making jewelry. She has the cutest boutique in a tropical paradise. Her day starts with coffee and opening her shop. After her coffee, she sits and makes jewelry, talks to clients when they come in about her pieces and their processes, and when she's ready for her break, she's walking down the beach with her dogs! But how she got there is where my journey began.

I called quits on my "life" as I knew it 3 years ago now. I quit my job, sold everything, and moved my dog and me to Costa Rica to be with my mama. I won't lie, I took my sweet time to re-group by working at my moms shop and seeing how life can drastically change with a simple choice. She started teaching me basic jewelry making. I started polishing her pieces and learning about chemical etching and patinas. One day she handed me a bowl of metal cuttings and said "Just make something!" I sat for days trying to put the pieces together and make something. The end result, sold the next day! I continued to work with her and make my new life. As time went on, I decided to come back to California and go to school for metalsmithing.

Now to the present, I'm creating on my workbench everyday making something special for someone who I have yet to meet. Someone who will want this piece of jewelry so much they see it and get it! That's the most rewarding part of what I do with my "job" now. I go to local handmade craft fairs and farmers markets to show my jewelry. I meet amazing people from all over and get to talk with them about my passion. I now get to be creative everyday and live a life that I actually enjoy. Your story is never set in stone, it can change with a simple choice at any point. If anyone asked me, I suggest taking the jump and try something completely different! It's always worth it!
