About

Wild Iris Studio fun and functional fashion jewelry with an emphasis on color and style.

I began making things jewelry-related at an early age. Growing up in Mill Valley in the 70's I frequented the Marin City Flea Market and found no shortage of cool junk and excellent people-watching. Fast forward to 1988. As an art school graduate with a BA in Sculpture I was hired into a position working with accessories designer David Navarro in San Francisco. I was an assistant to Mr. Navarro in his 3rd Street studio for 3 years and thoroughly enjoyed the exposure to the industry as well as to witness David's inspired creative process. Under David's guidance I was asked to create one of a kind pieces for his line Navarro Alternatives that were sold to Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue as well as small boutiques nationwide. David was a mentor who recognized my strengths and encouraged me to make things that were off-beat and distinctive. He showed me that it was worthwhile to take risks and important to tune in to customers. Fast forward to 2013. Today Wild Iris Studio is a one-woman show; I design and make all of the pieces myself and I manage all aspects of the business. I have stayed in business for the past two decades because of my ability to think on my feet and my willingness to flex with the times. I sell to boutiques and gift shops across the country and... I love what I do!
