I live in Eugene, Oregon with my wonderful husband Jon, our budding artist daughter Lily and our overly friendly dog Stella Blue. I have found that since moving here I feel much more creative and I am producing more harmonious and beautiful pieces than I've ever made. There must be something special about this place that gets the creative juices flowing! There are so many wonderful artists here.
My jewelry is greatly inspired by nature. The colors and textures in my necklaces are often inspired by the leaves on the forest floor or the stones on a beach. My Flow earrings and Spiral earrings especially are designed with the movement of water in mind. They reflect the flow of a tiny faerie stream through tree roots and the tiny pools and eddys in these woodland streams.
I have been creating jewelry seriously for almost ten years now and I finally feel like it is really becoming successful now. I am so excited and thankful to be able to do this full time now and share my work with so many more people!
