"The world may be your oyster, but it's up to you to find the pearls."

What started as a creative outlet for me to hand-make gifts for my bridesmaids, family and friends has turned into so much more. From coastal-themed artwork and home decor to jewelry and photography, I love experimenting with my findings to create unique and meaningful pieces.
