A Satisfied Soul

When I create something from raw materials with my own two hands, I feel such a deep satisfaction and happiness, that I know I can't live without it. Creating truly satisfies my soul. There is so much meaning and love behind a handmade object. It speaks to you and tells you the story of a person who loves what they do. When you receive a piece of my jewelry or ceramics, I hope some of my joy is passed on to you!

Nature is a big inspiration for me, but also the material itself. I love how a straight piece of wire or a lump of clay can be transformed into something beautiful in just a few steps. I get the most gratification starting from scratch. Everything you see here in my shop has been designed and handcrafted from raw materials solely by me. I use hand fabrication techniques such as sawing, forming, hammering and soldering. All of my ceramics are created by hand, by me, and fired twice in my electric kiln. I try to be as eco-friendly as possible, using only recycled silver, avoiding harsh chemicals, and using recycled paper for cards, gift boxes, and packaging. I do all of the designing, creating, photographing, curating, packaging and shipping, myself.

Frequently asked questions
Returns & Exchanges Shipping Cost

For returns and exchanges on items with free shipping at time of purchase, the original shipping cost that I paid will be deducted from your refund. Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs associated with returns and exchanges.

Sizing details

Measurements of items are listed in the description of each item. Please message me if you have any questions about an item.

Care instructions

Store your jewelry in the plastic bag provided with your purchase to help prevent tarnish when not in use.

Use a polishing cloth or the baking soda method to clean and shine your silver or gold jewelry.
*For jewelry with gemstones or pearls it is best to use only a polishing cloth on the metal.

Baking Soda Method: Make a paste with baking soda and water. Gently rub the paste on the jewelry with your fingers or use a soft toothbrush until you notice the the tarnish fading away. Rinse thoroughly in running water and pat dry with a soft, non-scratching cloth. Repeat if necessary. (Baking soda may not completely remove tarnish that is heavy and dark. Try using a polishing cloth and then the baking soda method.)

What I do to be Earth-friendly

Here are some of the things I do to make my business more earth-friendly:
100% recycled argentium sterling silver and recycled gold in my designs
Recycle my metal scraps- silver, gold, and copper
Try to avoid using harsh chemicals in my studio (and my house)
Recycled kraft paper gift boxes and mailing envelopes
Recycled paper jewelry cards and business cards
Sugarcane based or recycled copy paper for invoices, etc.
I walk to the mailbox to ship packages
I have lots of houseplants in my studio- they help clean the air!
I recycle everything that is recyclable: cardboard, paper, plastic, glass, metal, etc.
