About

A Beautiful Disaster

I didn't end up where I am now because it was a well thought out plan. No, it was more of many different random events that have swirled around & came crashing down in this world that I am now living within.

Jewelry was introduced into my life more by chance, rather than choice. While helping a child out with a Christmas present, I realized that creating jewelry was very soothing to me. My beginner's collection grew into an entire room that is now my workspace. A simple hobby has developed into a career, & a passion pays my bills.

The style of jewelry I create has evolved, much like I have. I finally feel it is at a place where my creations truly reflect the person I am. I love the vintage look, & the idea that each piece has a story behind it. It wasn't just created in a factory. It could have been a present for a lover, or a special gift bought for oneself. Even possibly a family heirloom lost through the ages.

A vintage brooch once loved & treasured, can be saved from the depths of an old dresser drawer & REinvented into a pendant that will be loved & treasured once again! The more worn a piece, the more I adore it. Just as different events throughout our lives have shaped the person we are today; many different vintage jewelry pieces have been assembled together to create a new item in my collection. I believe that just like each of us, jewelry that has been mistreated & broken, can be healed & polished into something better & shinier!
