Heirlooms for Ocean Lovers Who Strive to Protect Our Seas

I create handmade jewelry that is inspired by the sea, to spread awareness about its importance and beauty. Each piece is uniquely created and designed to last for generations. Growing up, I spent every summer in the water and sands of the Jersey coast. My collection of shells and other sea treasures is extensive, taking up almost every inch of space in my studio. In silver and gold, I fabricate, carve and cast using traditional metalsmithing techniques and unconventional objects from the Atlantic shoreline. A portion of yearly profits are donated to various conservation centers like the Cape May Nature Center, The Wetlands Institute, One Ocean Shark Research and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.

My skills come from a BFA in Jewelry and a minor in Photography from The University of the Arts in 2014. After graduating, I built a studio in West Chester and began my HKM Jewelry line inspired by nautical themes. I create because I cannot stop, even when I am on the beach I will turn each shell into a ring in my mind. I believe I instill a part of myself into each and every piece, as every maker does, which makes it difficult to let them go at times. When a piece is complete, sometimes I still can hardly believe I have made it with my own hands. I strive for that connection with a new customer - who loves the sea as much as I do, and who shares my mission to be an ambassador for it. This is what inspires me to continue innovating and creating new designs.
