Me and my oldest Pug, Carl, who is rocking the heck out of my Ocean Dreams necklace.
How it all began. . .
I have been creating jewelry since 2000.
It all began after a particularly rough day. To cheer myself up, I bought a fun orange and pink bracelet from a little shop.
After I brought it home, I realized I would like another one in green and blue.
So, I studied my new treasure and began teaching myself how to make jewelry.
Hundreds of thousands of beads and
thousands of pieces of jewelry later, here I am.
Throughout my struggles with depression and anxiety, making jewelry has been and will continue to be my joy and my peace.
While I am inspired by the colors and patterns that surround
each of us every day,
my biggest inspiration is the beads themselves.
I have surrounded myself with them and their energy moves me to create unique and beautiful wearable art that is my pleasure to share with the world.
