About TheArtfulTwig

On Etsy since 2013

Crafting artful, elegant designs inspired by Nature. Based in the tranquil Sonoran Desert.

"The purpose of art is the gradual, lifelong construction of a state of wonder and serenity."
– Glenn Gould

Art in many forms has been tugging at my sleeve, trying to get my attention, for as long as I can remember. My life was busy; I traveled often and moved from place to place.

When I landed here in Tucson, I discovered this city is host to one of the world's largest gem and mineral shows each year, and I discovered that living in the desert is a constant source of inspiration. I soon found myself immersed in making jewelry, and have been honing my craft as a metalsmith since 2009.

Each piece of jewelry is inspired by a sentiment, or sometimes even the metal and stones themselves. It's so rewarding when my customers let me know that a piece brings them joy, or that my work means something special to them, as well.
