I found my inspiration for this collection through primitive art, exotic cultures, and world travel. My collection was created using natural materials, including horn, vintage ebony, fossilized woolly mammoth, and semi-precious gemstones. My work is socially responsible and uses eco-friendly, sustainable materials and gemstones that are fairly traded.
My design philosophy is influenced by five basic elements; layer, texture, shape, pattern, and color come together to create a unique statement. My collection of jewelry is to be embraced in this way - wearing several pieces together to evoke the message of someone who has traveled far and wide, inviting all to see where she has been from the treasures she wears!
Artisan-crafted with a great attention to detail, form, and design, I created a sophisticated and unusual collection echoing ancient antiquities but with a modern approach!
Prior to the debut of my jewelry company, I was an executive in the cosmetic industry. I currently live in Atlanta, Georgia with my husband.
