Waste Not, Want Not

During my four years of art school undergrad, whilst studying painting, I discovered a newfound pastime: dumpster diving & vintage shop scavenging. By the time I graduated, I had a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) and a minor in resale buying.
It was also at this point in time I couldn't ignore my social conscience any longer—I'd grown utterly disappointed by all the mass-generated clothing being sold in stores. My heightened awareness continuously lead to outrage at how cheaply made garments had become compared to ones from the past decade—Not to mention all the outsourcing, exorbitant use of chemicals & wage slave labor on what seemed to be a growing trend of "throw-away-fashion". Buying new clothes from any retail corporation just felt like a massive waste in so many ways. As a solution, I steadily became preoccupied collecting, recycling & reconstructing garments, eventually reselling them . . . Thus my business was born!

My musings with jewelry followed in a similar manner. As my taste in fashion evolved, refined & simplified, I found myself drawn to delicate, understated jewelry design. However, much like clothing, it became overwhelmingly difficult to find decent yet moderately priced jewelry. Jewelry had also merely become "throw-away-fashion". . . It too was mass-generated & cheap in quality. OR the polar opposite . . . Fine Exquisite Jewelry sold at too high of a markup to even be obtainable.
In revolt, I immersed myself in a foreign world:
j e w e l r y m a k i n g.
In an attempt to create pieces I had been trying to find, I began sourcing local jewelry suppliers for materials and dove right in experimenting—quickly becoming creatively inspired. It wasn't before long that I picked up the metalsmith trade and haven't looked back since.
I continue to work exclusively with ethically & locally sourced materials of the highest quality possible—I find them most efficient for designing & manufacturing affordable, yet, sustainable jewelry.

I'm VERY fortunate & grateful to have found a way of incorporating my life-style & obsessions into a business. It brings me great pleasure to share my shop with a community of like-minded individuals promoting creativity, sustainability & ethical consumerism ♡ Thank You ♡

-Keep jewelry away from water, chlorine, sauna or any other chemicals such as hairspray, perfume, oils, lotions, etc.
-Store jewelry in an airtight container (i.e. original packaging) when not in use.
-Clean jewelry with a polishing cloth after wearing or as needed.
