Every stone is one-of-a-kind, so every piece is as unique as you!

As a jewelry designer, my interests and inspirations are many. My designs are a mix of classic, victorian, and eclectic styles and many factors influence my work. I have a background in studio painting and it continues to be a passion as well as an influence in my designs. Painting and jewelry design are creative processes that involve imagination and visual artistry, and they both can tell a story, evoke an emotion, or offer a glimpse into a world and realm that words can’t .

My love of travel to magical, breathtaking, and fantastic regions of the world has had a significant impact on my designs. The experience of exploring new cities, cultures, and hidden alleys has allowed me to collect inspiration as I go and with that memories of my journeys that I weave into my work.

From finding a unique piece of turquoise or a vintage silver brooch in Lebanon to hanging out on Sanibel Island and exploring hidden tide pools or navigating the streets of Egypt Turkey and Italy. I am always drawing inspirational references from the sights, sounds, and beauty around me.

Pearls, precious and semi-precious gemstones, are an essential element in my jewelry and clothing. I am always inspired by these natural wonders with their gorgeous vibrant colors, shapes, and nuances. Most of my jewelry includes one or more of these, which is why finding the right color combination and texture is so vital to me. I love dramatic and bold jewelry, but knowing that not everybody is a fan, I enjoy the challenge of creating a delicate but strong piece as well.

The pearl, known as the gem of the sea, is a beautiful gift from Mother Nature and another staple in my work. I love that pearls can now be worn formal, casual, playful and fantasy context. Styling a truly unique look brings a neat twist to any ensemble, and combining pearls with glowing elements is a personal favorite of mine.

Antique jewelry is another love, and I try to repurpose or recreate it whenever I can. I use these beautiful finds to blend a look that is fashionable and unique. I love the 1700’s and 1800’s era, the sophistication of the “Regal Fantasy” that is synonymous with glamour and elegance.

My pieces are all handmade from start to finish. From selecting the precious metals to sourcing the stones and elements, it is exciting to watch from beginning to end as all of these components come together to spring to life.

I have learned as a designer, I have to take chances, and sometimes I fail, but usually, I learn from my failures, and my work is enhanced in the end. My designs allow me to give back to my friends and my community that supports me. I hope that you like them as much as I enjoyed designing them.

We can make anything reality (within reason ;)

What is the difference between 925 and 999 Silver? We offer both!

All of our items are formed by hand. They are fired in our studio kiln at over 1500 degrees before being filed, polished, patinated, and polished again. We have hand finished our items by leaving an antiqued finish on the lower spots, and spot polished the highlights. The results are one-of-a-kind pieces with a gorgeous dimension. 925 has a lesser silver content and have a darker color, whereas 999 is the highest silver content, and offer a brighter tone and higher value.
