- Jewelry styles ranging from sterling silver and gemstone rings, to viking knit and wire wrapped jewelry
For as long as I can remember, creating things by hand has been a passion of mine. Five years ago, I took a basic metal fabrication class and fell in love with metalworking. College unfortunately did not work out for me, as I had to take a medical leave very early into my education. I still deal with severe fatigue and pain on a daily basis due to seven years of undiagnosed Lyme Disease, but making and selling jewelry has become a godsend for me. Since that early metals course, I have been self-taught, but I would love to work toward a degree in metal and jewelry design when I am well enough. Every day is a new learning experience- I’m constantly learning about my trade, and slowly but surely building up my workshop.
Much of my work is inspired by nature, architecture, and historical design. I personally love antique patinas on metal, even more so than mirror finishes. There’s just something about making a piece of jewelry that appears to have been rediscovered after years and years of natural oxidization- almost like digging up an archeological relic. Another passion of mine is creating unique settings for stones that showcase their natural form. When I’m not making jewelry, you can find me gardening, cooking, crocheting, composing, and enjoying a cup of tea.
