I have been obsessed with pyrite lately. I have these super sweet dangley earrings as well as a long sleek stud style. Check out the "about" section in my shop to see a video of me working on them.

About

I design buildings for a living. I'm just glad that I don't need to get a permit to make an amazing pair of earrings.

I am surrounded by women who inspire me. Quick & sassy business women, smart & loving mothers, strong & creative ladies who don’t let life push them around, women who laugh with gusto & banter with wit. I love these friends & when I walk into a room filled with these ladies, they are wearing a gallery of Ethereal Earrings.

My jewelry is designed with passion for bold women.

I am trained in architecture and design buildings for a living. I love it, but each project takes a long time to complete. I make jewelry because I just need to get out of the office & build something. Something that I don’t need to get a permit for. Something that won’t take me a year to finish. Something elegant & clean but also quick & dirty. I like to build jewelry because I get to design it just the way I like it & I get to build it myself.

As a native Oregonian living and working in Portland, I wanted to create a series of jewelry that highlights the beautiful city that I love so much. The Bridge Series began as quick late night sketchbook sketch and has become a labor of love. Countless hours have been spent massaging the design; researching and testing methods to make a cohesive series of wearable art.

My favorite earrings are the biggest and the boldest pairs but even the smallest of my designs make a statement when you walk into the room. They have a strong personality that matches the women wearing them. Every time I see huge smile coupled with a pair of my earrings, I feel a sense of gratitude and pride. Thank you for being you & thank you for enabling my tool habit.
