Just finished a custom created 18 karat yellow gold, diamond, seashell & seaglass fringe necklace for a fellow shell enthusiast. Now I need one for myself!

About

Jewelry Artist with a Passion for all Things Unusual

I am a native Floridian who lives for creating. As any true artist I dabble in everything. I would say that my favorite creative form is jewelry. Colored Stones and ancient coins are some of favorite materials to work with. One of my favorite things to do is take long walks on the beach, picking up interesting little tidbits along the journey in between swimming. Sass & Wiggle is the cache of treasure that I herd together from all of my passions for all to see and own!

I first started creating jewelry when I was about 12 years old and I just never stopped.

I was always a creative child with a highly active imagination. I remember being just old enough to be able to go outside without supervision and wandering in the woods surrounding my house. I would follow rabbits, squirrels, birds, foxes and the like to see where they went and I would find seeds and rocks, etcetera and create little sculptures out there among the pine trees and cabbage palms with the animals as my audience. I have always had the innate need to create. It has just always been there. That's how Sass & Wiggle came about. It just happened very organically.

My real breakthrough came right after I married the most handsome man on the earth, my husband, Corey. I was looking for a job and saw that an upscale fine jewelry store needed a sales clerk. I applied and after seeing my blatant interest in all things artsy fartsy and creative, I was given the amazing opportunity to train under a master jeweler as an apprentice. Divine intervention by my book. Now it's almost all I think about in my spare time and my mind goes through times when it is actually working too fast for me to write down all of my ideas!

I love spending my time in my studio! It's a solace and source of joy for me. I absolutely love to work with colored gemstones and natural materials as well as metal. My purpose is to create beautiful things that will make one feel special, uplifted, and happy. I have a real passion for creating and love what I do. Jewelry just has something for me that no other artistic medium provides. It's just... perfect.
