Living the creative dream, one inspiration at a time.

Opening this shop has been a long time coming for me. I have been making jewelry of some sort ever since I was a young girl. But in 2012, a friend and I were introduced to metal stamping and we taught ourselves how to do it via YouTube videos. I fell in love with it. I started out stamping on a little tray table in my bedroom. It was a time in my life when I really needed some faith, hope and love. I started creating pieces that spoke to me and uplifted me. And I found that family and friends really liked them too, so I started making gifts for them and considered starting an Etsy shop.

But, I put that on hold when life became a lot more hectic in the most wonderful and amazing way when my husband and I had our beautiful son, Nathaniel, in September of 2014. In October 2015, we relocated from Hoboken, NJ to Wilmington, DE, where we bought our dream house. I now have an amazing dedicated studio space to create my jewelry.

But the thing that really prompted me to start my shop, was the outcome of the 2016 Presidential Election. I, like many others, really believed that the glass ceiling would be broken and we would elect our first woman president. I never thought that someone who has said and done so many offensive things to so many groups and types of people, would be elected. I felt like I had to do something. So I decided to follow my dream and make it mean something. I have created several Hillary inspired pieces for those of us who want to continue the fight and wear it proudly. For these pieces, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to an organization that is near and dear to my heart, Planned Parenthood.

I hope you enjoy my shop and I look forward to creating something special for you!
