About me: I have loved to create art since i was a child. I originally started out as a painter and then discovered my passion for working with metal after taking a goldsmith class. Whenever I’m free, I like to create and explore new ideas. I also sew, which i have inherited from my grandmother who was a fashion designer and my grand-grandmother who was a hat designer.
How did i get started making jewelry: I had a large collection of pressed flowers and leaves that i collected from my local forest. During the winter in 2008 i had the idea to re-draw the collection and make gold pieces from them to pair with natural gemstones.
My inspirations: Lately i have fallen in love with natural mineral stones that i gold frame into little pieces wearable of art. I love the natural beauty and structure of those unprocessed stones.
