About

I handcraft original works of art from sterling silver and gemstones at my home jewelry studio in Boca Raton, Florida. I graduated from Miami Jewelry School and I take continuing education classes at Jewelry Creations Workshop in Miami to learn new skills.

I take great pride in my work; therefore each piece is carefully handcrafted using the best quality supplies from trusted sources, to ensure that your finished piece will wear nicely for many years.

Frequently asked questions
What is stabilized turquoise?

Turquoise is often soft and will crumble. When it is stabilized, it has been hardened, usually with epoxy or resin. Sometimes, as turquoise ages, if it has not been stabilized it will discolor and flake, even if it was a solid example when originally worked. With a permanent color and nice matrix, stabilized turquoise is a beautiful value.

What is the difference between fine silver and sterling silver?

Sterling silver is an alloy made of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper. The copper makes the silver harder and more durable but also causes the silver to tarnish over time. Fine silver is 99.9% pure silver. Fine silver does not tarnish, due to the absence of copper.

How do I care for my silver jewelry?

As with any fine jewelry, remove it before sleeping, swimming, showering, or house-cleaning with chemicals. Store it in a cool, dry place. When it becomes tarnished, wipe gently with a silver cleaning cloth, such as the Sunshine Cloth that you received with your purchase.
