On Etsy since 2009

Jewelry with the patina of time and travel, and a dash of gypsy spirit!

Artistic talent goes back several generations on my dad's side of the family - painters, watchmakers, photographers, musicians and even a playwright - so it always seemed natural to be creative. I've always loved to draw and paint, and I also dabbled in floral design for a while, but jewelry design is my real passion.

I joined Etsy in 2007, and was amazed at the endless amount of talent I saw here. In 2009 I finally got up the courage to open my own shop and what a great learning experience that has been! It's opened up a whole new world for me - and for that I owe Etsy a debt of gratitude. The experience of opening my shop and putting my things on display for the world to see gave me the confidence that eventually led to having my work featured in magazines such as Belle Armoire Jewelry, Jewelry Affaire, BeadStyle and Bead Trends.

My jewelry is created with a mixture of new and vintage components, found objects, premium Czech glass and stone beads. I'm constantly being inspired to learn new techniques and to grow in my knowledge and ability, in hopes that I can continue to offer unique and well made jewelry pieces that my customers will enjoy wearing. I recently taught myself torch fired enameling, which gives me another source to add rich color and texture to my designs.

Thanks so much for taking an interest in my shop!
