I've been designing and making things with my hands for as long as I can remember.
Once I got my hands on some jewellery-making tools in high school, I never looked back.
People have worn jewellery for eons - to show status in society, for religious beliefs, for protection, to provide strength, to heal, to memorialize loved ones and ancestors, or to signify special events and occasions. Jewellery can bring out emotions and memories. That's just a few of the reasons why I've always loved it. And being able to create my own? Even better.
Some of my favourite materials to use are faceted stones, gems, and found vintage treasures - especially in bold, bright colours... with some sparkly crystals and shiny metal thrown in for good measure.
I have a real passion for these special little adornments and it's a dream to create tiny, wearable pieces of art that you will love too.
Thanks for the visit!

I grew up in the Canadian Prairies, and now live in the Okanagan Valley of beautiful British Columbia. I am constantly inspired by the colours, textures and shapes of the nature that surrounds me. I like shiny things. And 80's music.
