Truly Handmade and One of a Kind

So, you came here curious about who I am and what inspires me, or perhaps you came here simply because you want to stalk and murder me. Lets hope for the former, but let me help you out either way. I'll try and keep it interesting without disclosing too much to make the whole stalking thing easier, gotta work for it right?

Native New Yorker transplanted to North Carolina, sorry stalkers, no address here ;) I spent my formidable adult years working in an office out of necessity AND JUST ABOUT DIED OF BOREDOM add that to stress growing up in a small town trapped by drama and too many people who know who you are. Try running out for milk in your lounge pants and NOT running into 2 ex-boyfriends, one nemesis and family wondering if you're sick or on the crack (hello public in lounge pants) and see if you don't need a relocation too. One joke about living on Dawson's Creek later and...

I bummed around Cape Fear Community College ( that tidbit should help my stalkers) taking every art class imaginable. I grew up loving art, working with my hands, creating EVERYTHING. I landed in Metalsmithing classes and it was like I had never known anything else. I have taken a few classes, watched tons of videos and devoured books to learn my craft. Who are we really kidding? I have fucked up more than I have achieved that, is how I've learned.
I design for those who desire to adorn themselves with things not found on the beaten path. I love, LOVE that the objects we cherish have lifespans beyond our own, that we are a small part of it's life and it will live on again and again, which is why I try and incorporate reclaimed, vintage and found objects in my work almost exclusively. Why buy wood when I can slice up a branch that has fallen, why buy leather when I can shred an old jacket? I also derive power from recycling. 99% of my work is made from recycled metals. I melt down and recycle all my sterling silver from scrap metal and sterling finds that need new life. All of these things make each one of my pieces 100% one of a kind which means you can say NA NA NA NA NA NA, YOU CAN'T HAVE ONE, ITS MINE ALL MINEEEEEEEEEEEE! And do a little spoiled brat dance, because really, you can!

For the people who need to have grabby hands on on the personals, check out some tidbits about me in the shop members section below.
