Life is full of change, but one thing that never changes for me is my passion to create. I am grateful to live in Portland where there is an atmosphere of creativity that inspires me to make bolder choices with my line of mixed metal and gemstone jewelry.
The contrast of sterling silver and jeweler's brass allows me to make statement pieces that are beautiful enough for a special occasion, but durable and affordable enough for every day wear. I love going to gem shows and looking for stones to bring my pieces to life. Sometimes just a little sparkle is all I need, but often the piece is all about highlighting the beauty of the stone.
Using mixed metals gives me the freedom to be more playful in the studio, which often leads to surprises that translate into pieces that are one-of-a kind and fun to wear.
