Who do you want to be today?
We are course and smooth, strong and delicate, sometimes rough around the edges-- my ‘urban chic’ jewelry of hand forged precious metals (and sometimes steel) embraces and reflects the contrasts within us.
I grew up near New York City, then earned an Architecture degree at UW in Seattle and never left this wondrous, mossy yet urban, inspiring full-of-contrasts place. Roots grow!
My artistic passion has always been devoted to seeing the self in relation to the world, creating a sense of place that embraces our own possibilities and contrasts. I believe that one way we self-define is revealed in the way we adorn ourselves; that definition creates a space for our unique vision as we move through the world. ‘Place’ is the anchor that gives scale to our lives. It is cobbled together out of the bits and pieces of worldly evidence and memory that allow us to create ourselves anew each day-- fully human and completely beautiful. I am honored when my jewelry takes part in that daily ritual.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
I love working on custom ideas with my clients. Talk to me!
What does "gauged" mean? Some of my earrings are for "stretched and healed" ears only, meaning the size of the ear piercing has been intentionally enlarged to accommodate a much thicker earring. Standard, run of the mill ear wires are sized from between 18 gauge (a teensy bit thick) to 22 gauge (quite thin). I always specify if my earrings are gauged for bigger holes, and these have their own section in my shop. I also specify if 18 gauge is used, as some with sensitive ears or snug holes need thinner wires. I do NOT specify when the ear wires are 20-22g, as that is a 'normal' size and what most of my standard earrings use.
Gift wrapping and packaging
All my jewelry comes gift packaged.
All my jewelry is available for wholesale orders, please convo for my terms (minimum first order, etc.). For the most part, the jewelry that is NOT made to order is one of a kind but can still be included in a wholesale order.
