My Mom was the first to get me started making jewelry as a little girl and instantly I was hooked. Who would have thought that keeping my little hands busy would turn into a lifelong passion? With a background in fashion and industrial design, the world of jewelry always called to me. Taking the time to seek all the knowledge and technique I could find. I still believe that there's always more to learn or a new way of doing things. The way jewelry creates memories, helps to commemorate special life events and can live forever will always fascinate me. I currently live and work in Denver but wander the globe for inspiration and unique supplies. Currently, I am especially in love with the custom side of my business where I get to help people celebrate, honor, and create pieces that fit them, their loved ones, and their lives.
