Finding a Way to Forge Ahead

Growing up in an artistic home of musicians and wood sculptors, I always felt the need to express myself through the arts. Attending college at the University of Washington opened my eyes to a vast of array of mediums and forms of expression, and after one metalsmithing class I knew I had found something I would pursue for life.

Since then, moving from tiny apartment to tiny apartment in Seattle, I've managed to continue my passion, shlepping along my substantial metal working equiptment (and angering a few neighbors along the way with my hammering!).

Now that I have moved my studio to the rural and artistic community on Whidbey Island, WA, I have a real studio where I am free to hammer as loud as I want, and my ideas can flow as easily as the island tide.

My jewelry is the result of meticulous handwork, forging and fabricating forms out of metal and carefully finishing every clasp and earring by hand. The designs are unique and bold but wearable. I'm always seeking ways of achieving voluminous form without weighing down the wearer. I want my customers to feel fabulous as well as comfortable.

Frequently asked questions
Sterling Silver Care Instructions

Silver can tarnish over time. To slow the process, store your silver jewelry in an air tight container. Keep your silver jewelry clean of chemicals and oils by occasionally washing with warm soapy water. A polishing cloth can bring back the original brightness of the silver. For oxidized silver, a polishing cloth may be desired to highlight the piece while keeping recessed areas dark as intended. For silver oxidized to full black, no polishing is needed, simply wash the surface with soap or alcohol occasionally.

My brass jewelry is turning my skin green. What can I do?

Some people have strong reactions to brass and bronze, while others have no reaction at all. If you are susceptible to these reactions, purchasing Sterling Silver jewelry might be a better option.

How do I care for my coffee filter jewelry?

Coffee filter jewelry has a water resistant coating. It is durable enough to wear in the rain. To clean, it's best not to soak the paper, simply dust the surface with a dry cloth or brush and carefully wipe down the ear wires with water or alcohol.

How do I find my ring size?

My rings come in US ring sizes. If you don't know your ring size, have a local jeweler size your finger for you. Or if you prefer to size your finger yourself visit this site for methods, charts and downloadable sample sizes:
