When creativity flows, magnificent things happen!

My passion for pearls, gemstones, shiny and colorful metal began decades ago while combing the beach collecting shells and rocks as a young girl. My insatiable appetite for pretty sparkly things only increased over the years, and I found myself training under a local goldsmith in Portland OR learning the fundamentals of jewelry design, fabrication, wax carving and casting.

Inspired and intrigued by the power of the torch, and the element of surprise in color and pattern of the patina process, emerged my line of big and bold to organic and ornate jewelry.
I find great joy in texturing, hammering and oxidizing metals in sterling silver, gold, copper and brass, and adding a variety of components to complete my designs.

May you discover a treasure in my shop that resonates with the musings of your heart and brings you great delight. Thanks for stopping by!
