Precious Metal and Rare Gemstones Brought Together in Unique Jewelry Designs.

As C.S. Lewis wrote “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” That quote sums up my journey with metalsmithing. Changes in my life circumstances led me to discovering my passion for metal work and jewelry fabrication. I love the challenge of mastering a new technique, even learning from my many failures.

My process begins with the idea of creating something special, unique and timeless. Maybe even a piece that evokes strong emotion, something you wouldn’t expect from jewelry. My recent exhibitions have centered on being pregnant with cancer. These works aim to show the sometimes precarious relationship between mother and child.

The scientist in me is drawn to patterns, movement and depth. I like to put a mix of these into my work. Utilizing many techniques to impart pattern or texture and contrast onto my metal, via embossing, etching, Keum boo, and casting. Melting metal can be a pretty cathartic adventure.

I hope you find a piece that speaks to you.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I do occasionally do custom orders. Please convo me with a request.

Care instructions

I like to clean my metals with a sunshine cloth. I usually include a small one with most purchases. Also a quick soak in warm water and dawn dish detergent with rinse gets off most debris. I don't like ultrasonic cleaners for gemstones.

Sizing details

Please be sure to verify your ring size when ordering. Keep in mind when buying wide band rings I recommend ordering 1/2 size larger.

**Buying rings online can be tough, that is why I have free shipping on most rings, and generous return policies.

Can I convo you with questions

Yes. I enjoying hearing from customers. Feel free to convo me with any questions.

Can I extend return time for gift or engagement

Yes. Please convo me before your purchase and I will work with you to set a reasonable return by date.


Is it a gift? Do you need a longer return time? Contact me prior to purchase and we can arrange one. Only those contacting prior to purchase are authorized longer return times.

Always notify me prior to returning an item. So I can be on the lookout for it.

All returns must be mailed via a trackable shipping method. Include all original packing and be in original condition. Insurance where applicable. My address is listed in your receipt included with your purchase.

All tags must be not be removed.

Earrings are not returnable for hygienic reasons, except those with ear wires. A 5$ restocking fee (earwire replacement) will be deducted from your refund.


All gemstones listed in materials are genuine. Any gemstones "treatments" are disclosed in the item description to the best of my knowledge. Most gemstones are heated to improve color and clarity-commonly approved practice.

Any synthetics or cubic zirconium are listed as such in the materials

Why aren't some of your pieces marked 925

Since I am a small shop I do not hold a registered trademark (very expensive). US stamp act requires all jewelry with a 925 mark also have a registered makers trademark. That being said all of my silver is fine or Sterling purchased through Rio Grande Jewelry Supply, Stuller, and Otto Frei.

Ring sizing

Some styles can be sized up 1/2 to 1 size, free. Sized rings are returnable with a 15% restocking fee. Please ask me before purchasing.
