I grew up on a small farm in Connecticut in a family full of artists. After receiving a BFA in photography in 1997, I began exploring my concepts through jewelry-making techniques.
An advocate for the small and forgotten, the displaced and discarded, I find the act of adorning oneself with these objects to be empowering. Each component of the natural world is beautiful, from molecules passing through the walls of cells to toxic mold, from single-celled organisms to deadly viruses. By embellishing ourselves with the forms we take for granted or are too afraid to think about, we celebrate ourselves and our place in the world around us.

Accepted payment methods

Shipping
DOMESTIC ORDERS: Your package will be mailed via Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation. If you would like to add insurance, please send an additional $3.00. Your jewelry is shipped in a kraft box suitable for gifting.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: If you would like insurance and/or tracking, please convo me. I am happy to add those services for an additional fee, except where they are unavailable. If there is not tracking and insurance, once I mail your order, I am no longer liable for its safety and whereabouts.
Refunds and Exchanges
If there is any problem with any Contagious jewelry, please convo me. I stand by my craftsmanship, but it's your responsibility to take care of your jewelry. My pieces are generally very delicate, and cannot withstand the abuse of being in tight jean pockets, hanging out with the change in the bottom of your purse, or being sat upon. Trust me; I've seen what happens.
Additional policies and FAQs
Do you have a boutique? If you're interested in carrying my work, either wholesale or consignment, please convo me.

Are you a fan of a great boutique in your town? Hook me up with them and you could score free jewelry. :)
