Where I’m Coming From
All of my life I have been drawn to the unique colors and inherent beauty in my native Vermont. In 2009 I moved to Harrisonburg, VA to be closer to family, and I was lucky enough to meet my husband at the local market where I started vending. All of my jewelry designs are created locally on our organic vegetable farm.
Not Just a Hobby
I’ve been creating sterling silver jewelry since 2002, and in 2004, I armed myself with a bachelor’s degree in Art, with a painting concentration. Jewelry started as a hobby that developed from a love to create, and my passion for selling spawned from opportunities vending at various Farmers’ Markets. It is now my way of life.
Less Traditional Techniques
Every piece is made with a wire-wrapping technique that makes my jewelry durable and beautiful. Please look closely at the jewelry, as this will give you a better idea of how it is constructed. The wire is fun to manipulate and lends itself to many different applications.
Products of the Highest Quality
I do not select any stones that have been dyed for my creations. The colors of the stones are a main source of inspiration, and keeping my process on a natural path enables me to connect with my pieces on an individual level. I’m am now soldering and stamping which has really opened the doors of possibilities when working with the wire and metal.
