Beautiful earrings! There was a slight issue with one of the studs but the seller responded very quickly to my message and sent a new one right away. Thanks so much!

LOVE-LOVE_LOVE-great with my elephant collection of jewelry !
every image has a story...
I grew up in New England, but lived in New York and California prior to settling in Bucks County, Pennsylvania with my family. My studio is housed in a civil war era barn that we moved onto our property and renovated. I love living and creating amongst such rich history and am inspired by it everyday.
Formerly, I worked as a film and video editor manipulating moving images and sound as a means to tell a narrative. Though I now create with a different kind of media, it's still about telling a story. My work is primarily paper based and each ‘focal’ features vintage images selectively culled and curated from a variety of vintage sources such as postcards, books, playing cards, for example, that are carefully preserved in resin.
I revel in the beauty of vintage graphics, packaging and images: the offbeat, the traditional, the discarded. Bringing them to a new life in a modern context while honoring their history is what fuels my inspiration and drives my design.
Want to know more about my studio and process? I was honored to have been featured on Etsy's blog series 'Inspiring Workspaces' - find the story here:
