I think it's important in life to be a visionary, to be creative and explore possible inner talents and passions through self-expression. One should not just dream, but execute, and in doing so positively inspire others.
I ventured into jewelry making as a way to be creative and to nurture and heal myself. As momentum took over I was soon researching and studying how to make jewelry, from essential pieces to the meanings of colors, stones, and history.
I've since had the pleasure of collaborating with family on some of my jewelry collections. My mother, Jenny, and grandmother, Georgia, started designing with me and it offered a great way for the 3 generations to bond and spend quality time together. I also collaborate with other designers and artists, combining my jewelry making with their artistry.
From venturing into restoring jewelry and handbag repair to selling jewelry accessories to private clients and various shows and events, this journey has been humbling, fun, and surprising. My inspiration comes from a myriad of life's offerings and finds it's home in the vision that I strive to live each and every day. I am inspired by my family, friends and my culture. We are daring! And despite the “norm" we rock our personal styles everywhere! Read more about my inspiration here.
