Be Happy. Laugh A Lot. Make Stuff."
I am a maker. I am not afraid to leave a scratch here, a dent there. I am proud of my artist's hands and wish to leave my mark, literally and figuratively in the jewelry that I make. My lines are not parallel, plumb, or square and neither am I. As I rejoice in the human condition and its flaws, I embrace those parts of me that aren't perfect as I share my vision with you.
I believe I make each piece for its eventual owner. That is why
each piece is different and unique. The secret and sacred
connection forged in every piece becomes apparent as soon as it
crosses paths with it's new home.
That's when the magic happens.
It's OK not to be prefect, uh, I mean perfect.
Here is just a sampling
of some of my inspirations. The sparks that ignite the fire
to create something just a little different.
The Making of a Jewelry
The making of my studio was a very personal endeavor. Particularly since I did it all myelf. From designing to measuring, to framing to drywall, from painting to moving in. It was a lot of work (and thanks to my hubby for helpful tips and wiring -I've got killer lighting!). After many months of planning and about a month of construction, it was finally done! I finally now have a place soley for making jewelry and for Chloe, my official Shop Dog.
