Joy. Purpose. Meaning.
My inspiration is in the things that are all around us: the graceful undulation of a ripple in a pond; the curve of a leaf as it reaches for the sun; the branching silhouette of a dendritic agate; the delicate colors of the first blooms of Spring. I want everything I create to have the understated elegance of a cashmere sweater.
To take the hardness of gems and metal and make them soft, I’ve spent hours at the workbench, carving, filing, buffing and refining the surface until I’ve achieved my signature Cashmere Finish.® The matte gold gathers and disperses the light until it seems like you can feel it glowing through your fingertips.
In a world where we interact through images and connect remotely, I want my jewelry to make you want to reach out to hold it. Sense the gold warming in your hands. Marvel at the beautiful forms and soft colors of the gems and crystals. Experience the intimate luxury of a beautiful object, crafted by hand, designed to last.
Every piece tells your story. That’s why it’s so important its beauty isn’t just skin deep. I use Fairmined and recycled gold and traceable gems from sources I know and trust to make sure my pieces tell a story of respect for the earth and its people too.
I fell in love with the art and craft of jewelry after a long career in book publishing. Finding gems that speak to me and creating designs around them is my joy. The quiet concentration of working with my hands, carving wax and shaping metal gives me purpose. Helping you celebrate special moments with jewelry that carries with it the pleasure of its making, from my hands to yours, gives meaning to every piece.
