Artfully crafted in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
I unknowingly started my love for jewelry as a child searching for treasures at the beach, local streams and rivers gradually adding to my collection. I wanted to wear some of the beautiful pieces and started playing around with beads and wire-wrapping and eventually turned my hobby into a business as others asked to purchase pieces I wore. Over a decade later I am still designing and growing in my knowledge of metalsmithing and forging all varieties of metals, recycled items, gemstones, Swarovski crystals and vintage finds. I am very passionate about my trade and love creating designs that become special keepsakes for clients and it is such a pleasure to see the happiness each piece brings them.
Thank you for your interest in my jewelry designs. I hope you enjoy wearing them as much as I enjoy the creation.
