Close your eyes and imagine your fingers finding a pebble on the beach. Tumbled by countless waves, it speaks of sun and sea, wind and water, time and tides, ebb and flow. Every time you hold one of my jewels, I want it to feel like that pebble, round and smooth and rubbed between your fingers until it feels like a well-loved thing that you’ve had for a lifetime.
My inspiration is all around us. The graceful undulation of a ripple in a pond. The curve of a leaf as it reaches for the sun. The branching silhouette of a dendritic agate. The delicate colors of the first blooms of Spring. I want everything I create to feel a little understated and elegant so that you’ll wear it often, like your favorite cashmere sweater.
To take the hardness of metal and make it appear soft, I’ve spent hours at the workbench, carving, filing, buffing, and refining the surface until I’ve achieved my signature Cashmere Finish®. The matte gold gathers and disperses light until it seems like you can feel it glowing through your fingertips.
In a world where we interact through images and connect remotely, I want my jewelry to make you want to reach out to hold it. Since the gold warming in your hands. Run your fingers over the soft finish. Marvel at the beautiful forms and subtle shading of the gems and crystals. Experience the intimate luxury of a beautiful object crafted by hand, designed to last.
Every piece tells your story. That’s why it’s so important its beauty isn’t just skin deep. I use Fairmined and recycled gold and traceable gems from sources I know and trust to make sure my pieces tell a story of respect for the earth and its people, too.
That’s why after a career in publishing, I fell in love with the joy, meaning, and purpose of the art of jewelry. Enjoying the quiet concentration of working with my hands, carving wax, and shaping metal. Contemplating the beauty of gems and finding inspiration. Embodying the joy and meaning of the special moments of your life in every design. Finding purpose in creating work that instantly becomes part of you, carrying with it the pleasure of its making from my hands to yours.
