Sine Metu--Without Fear
"Sine Metu" means "without fear" in Latin. This statement is both a tribute to the fashionable folks who love my work which is an eclectic blend of many inspirations, and also to our own fearlessness jumping into this business adventure!
After my grandfather retired as a Big Band musician, (now a Columbus, Ohio Musician's Hall of Fame honoree),my grandparents traversed the United States making and selling and repairing jewelry--a kind of nomadic creative adventure I can only imagine. As a child, I would listen to stories and get to make things with the miscellaneous beads, stones, and other goodies they had collected from their traveling days.
That had a big impact on my desire to work with beads and stones, and to design my own jewelry and accessories. I still prefer gemstones and rustic hues--such as turquoise, antiqued silver, and copper, which are so reminiscent of my grandparent's work in the Southwest.
I also draw inspirations from my Jewish faith, nature, and fantasy or whimsy.
I have since let my creativity run wild, and now create a variety of things that reflect my growth as an artist and as a mother of two girls: wall art, children's costumes and accessories, papercraft goods, and more.
