About

How did it all start?

A software engineer by trade, I loved to create handmade treasures since childhood. Growing up in a warm climate, I remember sitting on the balcony making something - embroidery work, drawing, sewing, knitting or making ceramics; always busying my hands with craft-work.

After many years of working in a large corporation, I decided to pursue my lifelong love of art and jewelry-making. When I discovered beadwork it was love at first sight. I was hooked. Over the years, I have been asked again and again, "Do you sell your work?" When I retired, I figured it was the right time to answer this question with "Yes, I do sell my jewelry and here is my shop."

I love beadweaving, everything beads and wirework. All my work is one-of-a-kind or limited edition, handmade by me. I make earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings and anklets.
The materials I use are seed beads, shaped beads, thread, components I make from pure silver (Metal Clay), Argentium, sterling and fine silver wires.

A customer once told me "When I look in the mirror wearing a pair of your earrings, it makes me smile." I hope my unique pieces will continue to bring joy to those wearing them.

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to contact me any time.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

* Jewelry care instructions
Taking good care of your jewelry is essential to maintain its fresh look and longevity.
All bead-woven pieces should be kept away from water. Put your jewelry on only after showering or swimming and after applying beauty products. Don't sleep with your jewelry.
Bead-woven pieces should always be stored flat to prevent stretching.
All silver tarnishes naturally. To prevent unwanted oxidation keep silver jewelry in an air-tight plastic bag. This will also help prevent scratching. To clean the patina in high spots, use only a polishing cloth - no commercial cleaners, please.
