Announcement   ✨🌿🌙🌿✨

Each piece is made by hand using sheet, wire, & natural stones in my little zen crafting cave, with positive & loving energy.

My personal inward journey of learning to embrace myself just as I am has led to allowing the open freedom of creative expression through working with metals & natural materials.

Inspiration comes from Mother Earth, the global history of jewelry, exploring cultures during my travels, & the natural beauty of semi-precious and precious stones.

The pieces I make are heavily influenced by the darkened tones & natural wear of antique pieces.

Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions at all, I'm happy to chat :)

Thank you for visiting 💕

I bought a pair as a birthday gift for a friend and one for myself. Quick delivery and the earrings look exactly as shown in the photo except more beautiful in real life. Love the design! Highly recommend this artist!

About

My Creative Journey

I'm a daydreamer born & raised in beautiful British Columbia.

Vancouver, where I was born, I've gone back to her calling arms to reside.
Steveston, my childhood home, is where my roots were formed.

I grew up studying music (classical piano performance) since a toddler & developed performance anxiety at a young age -creating jewelry is perfect for me as I get to work behind a bench away from the spotlight. I'm a wallflower/hermit at heart and love to spend time playing with rocks and minerals, silver and gold.

I'm a little bit of a perfectionist (...side-effects of a pianist) but the creative freedom of making & creating jewelry teaches me to allow things to unfold naturally, to appreciate organic designs, & throw out all the rules to remind myself that what I might view as 'wrong' can often lead to beautiful surprises, it's all part of the design.

A lifelong learner of the art form, I started my silversmithing journey in 2015 with Kelly Allanson, and have also loved the informative and skill-building workshops with Robyn Cornelius. Ron Vauthrin has also been a wonderful teacher.

The jewelry I love creating is a blend of bohemian chic, complemented with eclectic joy, the freedom to create, and a touch of rustic worldly charm.

Materials I love working with include:
925 sterling silver
999 fine silver
14K rose gold
14K gold fill
Natural stones of all types: raw, faceted, rose cut, cabochon

More exploration led me to learn lapidary arts! I fell in love with this almost immediately, and was thrilled to learn how to turn nature's treasures into heirloom jewels.

All my handmade pieces are made in a little zen crafting cave in my small apartment in Vancouver, BC. Prayer flags gently sway by the open window, beautiful locally handmade stained glass feathers dangle by the door, a vintage chest holds local driftwood & other craft supplies; I'm surrounded by crystals, gemstones, & other inspirational pieces that bring feelings of serenity, & reminders of my global travels that bring a smile to my face so the same positive feelings are put into what I make.

Future endeavors may expand to offering hand cut and polished stones -
(...there's a Genie on my wishlist!)

Frequently asked questions

Taking Care of Your Jewelry

Please take care of jewelry when worn to avoid potential snags on delicate clothing.

With all jewelry, take care when wearing pieces with stones, especially rings. The nature of stones is if they are struck or hit on a certain angle, the stone may crack, fracture, or even shatter (all depends on the individual stone structure).

Consider removing jewelry before starting activities that require the use of chemicals or detergents. This may result in wearing out the polish more quickly, or other unhappy results.

Silver will tarnish over time, especially Sterling Silver.
Watch this DIY on removing tarnish using household materials!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsKLcc13WBo

**DO NOT USE tarnish remover on natural stones!**

Custom and personalized orders

If you see an item listed but would like it with a different stone or sizing, please send me a message & I'm happy to see what stones I have on hand :)

Please note: custom orders will take time to complete, perhaps ready in 3-4 weeks. When your custom piece is ready, it will be prepared for shipping.

I will keep in touch with you along the way with the progress of your custom piece right up to keeping you posted on when I'll be dropping off your parcel at the post office.
