    Owner, Designer, Photographer

    I've been creating for as long as I remember. Whether the media is watercolors, ink, acrylic, my camera or my computer, I am happiest creating. My art has been inspired by living in Kuwait, Turkey, South Korea & currently Florida.

I make art because I love everything about it. I carefully source each & every material I use. I am a consummate student of techniques. I constantly dream up designs in my head. I am inspired by everything around me: the current country we live in, nature, other artists, my kids. I am fueled by a passionate need to create.

My designs are eclectic statement pieces. I strive to look at innovative ways to mix materials, techniques & findings. I add unexpected touches; small details that complete the look. My hope is that when you buy my work, something about it caught your attention & made your heart smile. I hope you receive as much joy as I did creating it.

If you don't find the answer to your question here, please convo me.
Thank you so much for visting my shop.

** How do I care for my new vintage jewelry? **
I recommend that you treat your new goodies with the same care as all fine jewelry. You can gently polish your pieces with Jewelry cleaning cloths. I like the Sunshine Polishing cloths for Sterling Silver. Remember the vintage components are vintage & somewhat fragile, so treat your jewelry with love. I store my jewelry in a jewelry armoire & when I travel I use a jewelry roll.
