Life along the Chesapeake Bay offers many sources of inspiration for an artist to draw from. Beautiful views and captivating water. Bountiful life of the sea, sands and air. The beauty and awe of a powerful thunderstorm. Or the serene tranquility of a cool ocean breeze. It is from these rhythms of nature that I find my muse and desire to share this inspiration through harmonious pieces of handcrafted jewelry.
I treasure unique items and materials, such as sea glass found while walking along the shoreline. I believe each piece has a story to tell and I try to let the natural characteristics show through in organic and textural pieces.
Every item is made with love and care and is truly original. I hope you enjoy your visit.
Having always appreciated interesting pieces of jewelry, I decided to sign up for a class and try my hand at some of my own designs. I was hooked immediately. Taking an object or raw material and developing something new and beautiful with it fascinates me. Soon after I was making jewelry for friends and it was then that I decided to open my own shop.
I love to create pieces with a contemporary feel that are organic and textural, understated yet chic, inspired by nature and handcrafted from socially and environmentally responsible materials. I believe that an inspirational and harmonious piece of jewelry that you love can be worn everyday for every occasion - whether it is jeans and a tee or a cocktail dress.
