About

Jewelry as souvenirs

I made my first jewelry sale at the age of 8 when I initiated a fund raiser for a terminally ill classmate outside of the cafeteria during lunch. The product? Old school friendship bracelets! We sold $30 worth on the first day - a large sum in the eyes of a 2nd grader selling constructed string! My passion continued through my youth as I mastered the art of camp gimp bracelets and teenage hemp necklaces. While shopping in a flea market in Beijing a new medium struck my interest: semi-precious beads! I have since been fascinated with the medium as an element in formal and casual jewelry alike. Though some of the materials I use in my jewelry are from the local craft store, I purchased a good deal of my materials while bargaining in Chinese on the streets of Shanghai or San Francisco. I thus hope each of my pieces act as a mini-souvenir of places we have each been or hope to go.

    Few things in life are a thoughtful as "homemade." I hope each of my pieces act as a mini-souvenir of places we have each been or hope to go.
