Where does the spark to create come from? For my handmade jewelry studio, it comes from a passion to use my right brain in a very left brain head. Jewelry designing started 15+ years ago. Starting with simple bead stringing turned into advanced wire wrapping that I sold on Etsy starting in 2007. In 2013 I started metalsmithing. I love creating without mass production, without technology, with just imagination, care and a lot of love.
My handmade jewelry studio is where all creation & admin work is done by lil’ ol’ me, in the mountains of Southern CA (yes, the picture above is where I call home). I am jewelry designer, customer service rep, graphic artist, photographer, website designer, and postal lady all in one. I love that this is my day job and I have enjoyed being a full-time entrepreneur since Summer 2009. I’m an ethical vegetarian (13 years and counting), love cows dearly (would love one of my own), and have a very sarcastic sense of humor!
All of the jewelry in my collection is handmade, 100% from recycled metals, and I recycle 100% of my scrap metal! I buy metal from companies in the US, who have a commitment to our environment. My diamonds are all ‘conflict free” and ethically sourced from the reputable Hoover & Strong or Rio Grande. I also love working with other ethically sourced and lab created gemstones that fit anyone’s budget. I love creating rings, designs for loved ones to share with each other. I fully support all marriages and unions.
