My love for handcrafted artisan jewelry began while I was in college. I worked for a small business owner whose fabulous boutique carried the most amazing artisan jewelry. Working there really opened my eyes to the possibility of not only being a small business owner, but creating my own unique pieces of jewelry. It wasn't until many years later that I decided, with the support of my husband, to take the plunge and venture into the world of jewelry design and Etsy.
I source my gemstones and materials from reputable suppliers that I've been working with for a number of years. When it comes to purchasing materials, I am very particular in what I choose to use in my designs. I want to offer my clients luxury gemstones, as well as high-end findings (chains, ear wires, clasps). The materials I purchase are those you would find being sold in high-end boutiques. Besides exquisite gemstones, my other true love and passion is for antique and vintage pieces, particularly lockets. I spend a great deal of time searching for special pieces to re-invent, so that they can be worn and enjoyed by today's woman. There is something so special about mixing antique pieces that have a history and reinterpreting them for modern times.
Creating pieces that are wearable for every day is something I strive for; "casually elegant" pieces that can easily transition to formal or special occasions because they are classic in design. Knowing that a piece of my jewelry will always remain in style and can be worn effortlessly for years makes me proud.
