Though my jewelry making started over two decades ago, I didn’t fully embrace it until 2016. I’ve always used jewelry making as a creative outlet from my otherwise left-brained life. I’m trained as a PhD chemist, and was a chemistry professor after completing my studies. In 2016 I left teaching to run my own business.

I love sourcing quality materials and finding ways to make them work together. I strive to make pieces that you will want to wear every day, not only because they are beautiful, but because they are comfortable.

When I’m not making jewelry and leather goods, I love traveling with my husband, running, bringing my therapy dogs to the federal prison, and volunteering with local dog rescues.
