About

    

I love to wear and create colorful pieces. I enjoy combining colors and creating different shapes and forms. I appreciate how what you wear and what you bring into your life and home, can highlight your personality, current mood and true self. I see accessories as unique as are people.

Since I was a young child, creating with my hands has taken many forms. I was always bringing home something new and my mother was always finding a place to display it. To this day, my parents still hold on to items I made well over 30 years ago. As an adult, I still enjoy experimenting with new media and learning different crafts. Some of my favorites are sewing, watercolor during camping trips, collecting driftwood for mobiles, and building things for our home. Regardless and most importantly, I love to create with my hands and have fun doing it!

My unique + small batch jewelry, home sewn goods and wall hangings are all handmade with intention, imagination & love in my Bay Area home (either at my kitchen table or my little handmade desk). I currently have three main jewelry collections: Semi-precious stone, Metal + Wood, Ceramic Stoneware and Polymer Clay, though I am regularly incorporating different materials, such as felt, glass and acrylic. Most of my pieces are simple, as I believe that the colors, textures, and materials speak for themselves. I love the ability to create and continue adding new and different offerings for all of you. Creating takes many forms, shapes and styles and I go where my hands and heart lead me!

The semi-precious stones used in my jewelry are hand picked to complement one another. I don't seek out "flawless" or inclusion free. I like inclusions. Many of the beads I use, either handmade, repurposed or purchased from other small/local businesses, are placed "backward" or opposite from one another on purpose. Something a little "off", a little different. Unique. 

Inspiration for my pieces are gathered from my day-to-day life as well as time spent in nature. I am drawn to colors when camping in the desert, spot shapes when walking down the street, and dream up designs in my mind. Wherever I am, I always try to have my sketchbook ready so I can capture the designs and ideas. 

As an artist and local business owner, I try to support other small, local businesses and fellow artists when purchasing my materials, as well as re-purposing when possible.

I hope you connect with my pieces and enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them.
