Metal journeys

Ever since I was a young girl, I have been attracted to beautiful jewelry. I would stare into every jewelry store window, entranced by flowing metal forms and brightly colored gems. I doodled necklaces and rings in my notebooks. Then, one day, I realized that there were actual people who designed and made these pieces, so why couldn't I be one of them too? This was the start of my metalsmithing journey.

In time, I came to learn how to forge metal, cast ingots, roll sheet, solder and other techniques to give form to the designs in my mind. Because of my inquisitive nature, I usually stretch techniques to their limits, creating my own way of working. And, of course, I have quite a collection of books. Everything is better with books. I try to surround myself with tranquility and peace. Music, books and open space are very important to me and, I believe, are echoed in my work. I like to make pieces with simple outlines but that are striking and have a modern feel.

I strive to offer handmade jewelry that is unique and interesting. All item(s) are designed and made by me, personally. I use only high quality materials and I am constantly looking for unusual stones to complement my designs.

I love working on custom orders, so feel free to contact me with your ideas. Check out my favourites - I hand picked a selection of stones on Etsy that I feel are wonderful for custom work. Perhaps one of those can be the starting block for your special project.

Please contact me for additional information on my listings. I am very available and I want my customers to be happy with their purchases.

PayPal is the accepted form of payment. Buyers in Brazil, please feel free to contact me for alternative forms of payment.

Payment via PayPal is due immediately an order is placed. If payment is not submitted within 3 days, the transaction will be canceled. Please contact me if there are any issues with payment so we can work it out together.
