About

Living the Life - The artist

Where it began - As a little girl on a small farm in Southern Oregon, I was care free and allowed to explore the land as well as my creative inquisitiveness. I scoured the woods behind our house for feathers, built forts , made mud pots and picked blackberries. When I wasn't exploring the beauty outside, I was learning the piano, tearing apart old cloths to create my own fashions and reading, reading reading!

When I graduated from high school, I dreamed of being a fashion designer. Working my way from production sewing, to R&D, pattern engineering to product developer. My life was forever changed when I decided to take some vintage beads from an old dress and figure out how to make them into jewelry. That self taught, inquisitive nature I learned as a child drove me to learn and grow into who I am a an artist today.

A pivotal moment: In 2005, I walked into SAKS where the fine jewelry manager loved my jewelry very much, but gave me the MOST important critique of my carrier. He said that I had a great eye, strong designs and quality work BUT.... my findings needed to be unique and not something that anyone could just buy in a catalog. With this advice and a desire to grow, I was bound and determined to learn metal work. With a few basic soldering classes and hours of creative time in the studio, I have found my voice as an artist. Now, I sell in boutiques, museums, galleries and online all over the world and am grateful every day that I am blessed to share my passion with others.

What inspires me today - You can still see the influences of my love of nature, fashion and the environment around me. Exotic images, passionate music, lush textures and colors.... These are all things that make my heart sing and my creativity flow. The stories of those that fall in love with my work and how it affects my life.

My work: Hand hammered textures in copper, bronze and sterling silver. Quality stones and findings. Rich patina colors and details. Copper and bronze are double clear coated to protect the patina and tarnishing.

I design hand crafted pieces from bold one of a kind statement pieces that will get your heart pounding, to simple everyday pieces that you can go to day after day. Proudly made in the USA for real woman of all ages.
