About

I make jewelry and small scale sculpture. Sometimes I make other stuff too.

I am a metalsmith, wife, and mother, but that doesn't say much. I love to learn things, experience new places, see things, make stuff, and otherwise nerd out.

I've been making things since before I can remember. My mom encouraged this and sent me off to art camps, art classes at the local schools in the area, even to the Creative Workshop here in Rochester. I applied and was accepted to School of the Arts, a local art based high school. After that I went on to a local college where I earned my BFA in dimensional arts, which includes metal and sculpture. Since then I take sporadic classes in various media to keep my work fresh and ever-evolving, but mostly I play with materials, shapes, and colors until I find something that really speaks to me, then I put it all together and send it off into the world and hope it finds a loving new home.

I live in Rochester, New York, where it's never warm enough, with my husband, son, and our ever-evolving menagerie of animals.

    I have been making swell metal things for you to use, love, and enjoy since 2005. I love my job, and I feel lucky every day I get to spend making things.

Thank you for your interest in my work, and for the opportunity to share it with the world.

Due to the handmade nature of my work no two pieces are ever the same. Because I am not a machine there will be imperfections, proof of the human interaction between tool and metal.

All purchases will be packed in a pretty little recycled paper jewelry box and wrapped with a shiny ribbon. It will be packed suitably for shipping and always looks great for gift-giving. If you would prefer another form of packaging please convo me.
