My journey

After spending most of my life working in corporate America and feeling like I just didn't quite fit the mold, I finally found something that made my heart sing. Right after my first Silversmithing class I was hooked! It was literally life changing for me. I took another class with two amazing woman, Kelly and Victoria, my mentors who I'll forever be grateful to, then I started buying every tool I could get my hands on and started hammering away. Thank heavens for a supportive, and patient, husband!

What you see here is a collection of jewelry with a spiritual/bohemian feel that is all original and hand crafted, using sterling silver, 14 KT gold & rose gold filled, copper, gemstones, and crystals. I solder most jump rings and openings closed so you have

less chance of losing your favorite pieces :-). 

Because my items are made one off and not mass marketed, they are marked sold if they are purchased and I don't have a similar stone. But if you see something that you would like a version of, as no two creations are ever identical, please just email me and we can create it if I still have the gemstones. If not, we'll create something new and just as great just for you! Everything I create is made with love, gratitude, a bit of uniqueness and good vibes.

Inspiration comes from everywhere - travels, nature, the magic you find in everyday life,

but mostly I just let the metal and gemstones speak to me. 

I've put my heart into these pieces and I hope you find something here that will bring you half the joy that I've put into them.
