About

Into the Light

I've been an artist all my life and a trained professional artist for the past 15 years. I've studied painting, sculpture and many other disciplines. Although, I've focused my efforts on painting and sculpture, I started making jewelry in 2011 first assembling old parts and bringing them back to life. It wasn't too long before my desire to make my own jewelry from scratch grew stronger. Fast forward a couple of years and I'm taking metal smithing classes on-line and in person with several fantastic teachers of widely different background.

Despite now being trained in silversmithing, I can't quite abandon assemblage jewelry, as it is still my best way of expressing my spiritual experience into tangible objects.

inLumina is another aspect of my artistry and it is a one-woman deal. My jewelry is an extension of my painterly endeavors and a tridimensional expression of similar themes. The word Lumina is the plural form of the latin word "lumen" which means light, candle and star. In a way I believe when I create, I'm inside the light of my life journey and it's the most blessed place to be. I believe the act of creating to be the ultimate enlightenment.

My themes vary, but always somehow center around the celestial, spiritual and natural world . They are often executed in what I like to call a Victorian Bohemian fashion. You can expect to find ornate gothic memento mori inspired creations and romantic decadent pieces filled with whimsy.

When you buy my art jewelry, you're buying years of artistic expertise whipped up in a medley of unique artifacts, not just mere jewelry.

Please feel free to ask any questions and contact me if you'd like something created solely for you, whether in pure sterling silver or in mixed media, wether rustic and simple or ornate and sophisticated. I want to make a wearable artifact that has meaning to you. We will discuss it over several convos.

Join me in this eclectic journey, and into the light we go!

Custom and personalized orders

Custom orders vary in time for production, please contact me for arrangements.

Once a custom order is placed I ask a non-refundable 50% deposit in advance with the remaining balance due according to the layaway payment parameters (see question on layaways).

I will help you design your piece, until we reach an agreement. I will provide sketches or pictures of in-progress work if necessary.

Why are my black copper items turning back to copper?

Unfortunately there is no way to keep a patina forever on any kind of metal. It can be reapplied and sealed but the copper will alway resurface with wear.
If you wish for me to reapply the patina, please send the item back to me with return postage and I will reapply and seal the patina.

What can I do to keep my silver bright?

Sterling silver has a tendency to tarnish with wear. To minimize the tarnishing process, you can wipe your ring with a soft cloth and place it in a ziploc bag.

At some point you silver will dull, fortunately there are some cloths that are called "sunshine cloths" that will revive your silver like it's new.

I currently do not sell or provide them, but I hope to provide them in the future when I offer more silver items.

Additional Policies on Returns

I insure all orders in the U.S.A. free of charge, if you need to return an item, please add insurance as well. If the item arrives damaged and was not insured, it will not be refunded.

I do not post insurance for orders overseas. If you would like insurance, please contact me and we can arrange fees.

Why do I see imperfections in some of your work?

I often make imperfections part of my work, especially if I work with vintage parts. I find patinas, verdigris, tarnish and wear fascinating, as they tell a story about the piece itself. I also like to make some of my pieces that I make in silver or copper look aged and organic as I emulated those very things I love. Time and wear tell a story, my jewelry is meant to look "lived". If you have concerns, please contact me.
