I grew up as a very creative child always getting into something. Coming from a very talented family was a positive influence. Every day was another project and a fun adventure.
My love of jewelry goes back as far as I can remember. I have spent the better part of
30+ years in the traditional retail jewelry environment.
Making art/jewelry from vintage discarded jewelry and watches allows me to take my
years of experience in traditional jewelry, my love for antiques, jewelry and watches,
and fuse it with inspiration to create new items from non-functional treasure.
To give them new life is very satisfying. I enjoy discovering the treasure locked inside and bringing it to life for someone to enjoy for years to come. The hardest part for me is
parting with my new creations! I tend to want to keep them all.
