About

I discovered metalsmithing in 2006 just by chance. During my (should have been) last semester of school I needed an extra class to fill in my schedule and metalsmithing fit in so I signed up. I ended up loving it so much I changed my emphasis and spent two more years learning metalsmithing. I graduated in 2009 with a BFA in Metalsmithing.

Using traditional Metalsmithing techniques I create each piece is individually from start to finish allowing each piece to be unique. Every piece starts out as wire and sheet metal and is cut, formed, textured, soldered and finished by hand.

Inspiration for my pieces is a combination of minimalist and modern combined with the beautiful and decorative style of art nouveau. My pieces are designed to be beautiful and feminine but simple enough for everyday.

Additional policies and FAQs
Jewelry Care

All of the metals (Sterling Silver, Copper, Brass) used in my jewelry are left natural; I do not use sealers or plate them. These metals do eventually tarnish and will need cleaning. This is totally normal!
Each order comes with a polishing cloth. For some people the acids in your skin combine with metal and make copper or silver salts which can leave a green/gray color against your ear. They are harmless and can simply be washed off.

Patina may or may not be desirable depending on your preference. To prevent jewelry from tarnishing avoid wearing your jewelry in the shower/swimming. When you are not wearing a piece keep them in a sealed plastic bag to keep air from getting to them. Cleaning your jewelry often will also help (especially earrings!) Cleaning your earrings with just soap and water is fine. Make sure to dry them.

To clean tarnish from a piece I recommend using the “sunshine” cloth included with most orders. Pieces with a brushed finish can also be cleaned with any abrasive type cleaner (like bar keepers friend) and a scrubby or toothbrush. For polished finishes any type of liquid metal/jewelry cleaner and a cloth should work.

Patina Care-Black/Brown Pieces
Patina is only a surface treatment. It is sealed with a wax sealer, but over time it is possible for it to fade, usually on areas that are against the skin. If your patina starts to look dull, a tiny amount vaseline can be rubbed with a cloth or paper towel and will make the color appear darker. *Do not use the sunshine cloth or anything abrasive on pieces with patina.

Is your jewelry hypoallergenic?

I do not guarantee anything to be hypoallergenic as everyone is different and what works fine for one person may not for the next. It is the buyers responsibility to know if they have any sensitivities to certain metals. I will not take returns on earrings because of a metal allergy/sensitivity.

Wholesale availability

Please contact me for any wholesale information.

Post Length?

Why different post lengths? Its really all personal preference, everyone is different.. Some people don't like their earrings too tight, others don't want a ton of excess post sticking out. If you're not sure measuring a pair you currently own is best.
In general, 7/16" is usually a good size for most people. 1/2" is more of an oversized post for people that find a lot of earrings too tight and 3/8" works well for piercings where you don't want a lot of excess post sticking out, like along the top of the ear, although it can work for regular lobe piercings for some people.
