...becoming Island Cowgirl...
I was born in upstate New York..studied jewelry design at NYC's Fashion Institute of Technology, where I began my love affair with jewelry. After graduating, I fled the noise of the city and found my way to the Caribbean Island of St. Martin where I lived on a catamaran, dove for buried treasure & sold my jewelry on the beach.
Restless for new challenges, I moved onto studying silver making in Mexico, surfing in Hawaii and French in Paris before returning to the States. Miami Beach was on the verge of being reborn and had everything I loved...the excitement of the city and the warmth of the beach. I went onto own Bash nightclub with actor Sean Penn and Simply Red's singer Mick Hucknell and later went on to co-own Nikki Beach.
After settling down and moving out west, I met the love of my life and got married. Looking for a quieter life we moved onto greener pastures and today we live in Nashville, Tennessee with our horses Sunny & Libby, our dog Nigel and of course my awesome husband.
Each handcrafted romantic creation is hand carved with poetic etchings and words of inspiration before being dipped in sterling or 14k gold using several age-old techniques such as lost wax casting. Island Cowgirl Jewelry strives to create not just unique handmade jewelry but "wear forever" keepsakes.
Everything is made by hand, with love right here in Nashville, TN.

Never at a loss for inspiration..."I find beauty in things that I loved as a child..., the sun on my back, the sand in my toes, trees and the stars, the flowers along the garden path, puppy dogs and hearts..."
I live near the sea, ride horses & am a lover of all things furry. I hand carve each romantic creation with poetic etchings & words of inspiration. It is then cast using the the ancient art of lost wax casting before being dipped in sterling silver or 14k gold.
Never at a loss for inspiration...I find beauty in things that I loved as a child...the sun on my back, the sand in my toes, trees & stars, the flowers along the garden path, puppy dogs & hearts...
My new bridal line "Ever After" uses only the most precious metals & hand picked rose cut stones. We love colored rose cut diamonds!
