Handmade Jewelry Inspired By Nature

In 2009, I found myself with a fresh Bachelors Degree of Architecture and all the promise in the world...right? Well, after months of fruitless job searching in this bleak market I decided to take matters into my own hands and start my jewelry business!

While studying Architecture at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo I earned a Minor in Art that focused on jewelry design. I have been making jewelry for 4 years now and for three of those years I taught Jewelry Casting and Metal Smithing at the Cal Poly University Union Craft Center.

My jewelry is inspired by colors and shapes I see in nature. I love working with earthy colors. One of my favorite effects in nature is when a little bit of a really bright color peaks through its surrounding of more muted colors, like fresh budding flowers on a late winter tree.

I now live in beautiful Portland, Oregon where have set up my very own jewelry studio and produce all of my current work.
