A recent photo session with my bellflower charm ring design. It's now tumbling around on a customer's finger.

About

artist, crafter, maker, mother, gardener, cat wrangler, dog kisser, bike rider, wanderer

Having originally studied painting and drawing in my early years, then later, ceramics - both wheel and hand built, I came to jewelry making by teaching myself traditional metal working techniques. I love the fact that people can adorn themselves with small sculptural objects as a form of expression, and so for me jewelry making is a wonderful blend of art, design, utility and poetry.
Now after many years of renting studio space, my husband and I have had a studio of our own constructed on our property. It's here that I'm finding that light and space are both a most beautiful addition to the creative process. My jewelry studio is a loft that sits above my ceramic studio and looks out upon the greenhouse where we plan to grow plants and start seeds for growing organic fruit and vegetables for our family.
Now with the addition of a ceramic studio I can finally fulfill my dream of combining mediums and create ceramic and metalwork pieces of jewelry. I'll be introducing that new work in the year to come. So please stay tuned!

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Please be sure to double check your ring size before ordering a ring. You can purchase an inexpensive ring sizer on Etsy, or have your finger sized at a commercial jewelers shop.
You can request a change in length for necklaces or earrings. Just contact me via convo to let me know what your preference is. Added length of any significance will require a slight cost adjustment.

Care instructions

I include care instructions with each item purchased. Most pieces require occasional gentle cleaning in a liquid jewelry cleaner safe for silver, gold, stones & pearls. Avoid using an abrasive polish as this can remove delicate finishes and patinas. Store jewelry wrapped in archival tissue in a Zip Loc brand plastic bag to prevent tarnish and surface scratches.
Oxidized patinas will eventually lighten and wear away in areas that come in regular contact with skin and elements over time. Avoid polishing as this will remove the patina. To help maintain and protect oxidized patinas, you can occasionally rub the surfaces with Renaissance Wax ( archival wax ) or a few drops of oil. Remove any excess with a soft lint free cloth.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All jewelry purchases are packaged for gift giving and include a gift tag and care instructions. If you'd like a gift message included just let me know in the checkout comments, or send me a convo.
