Artist's Statement

I work really hard to create jewelry that will last through many lifetimes. I want all my work to bring happiness to my customers and, on its best day, to reach the level of heirloom. The thought of someone thinking “This was my Mom’s favorite piece of jewelry” or “This was Dad’s wedding band” fills me with joy and keeps me skipping out to my bench each and every day.

On any given day you can find me working in my studio, reading, knitting, playing with my kids, walking our dog, hanging out with my husband, ordering gemstones, laughing, sketching, camping in our awesome vintage Scamp, attempting a new recipe or chasing our incredibly naughty dog around our house.
