For me, designing a piece of jewelry is incredible! I describe it like reading a story I have never read while, at the same time, I am the author. My introduction to jewelry was in middle school. My teacher, ex-golden gloves boxer turned art teacher, made beautiful, delicate jewelry. This strange combination totally got me. I found designing jewelry came naturally and the metalwork akin to meditation. I aced the class. I was hooked! That Christmas my mother gave me all of the basic tools to begin what is now my life's passion. With over 30 years of experience, working for large jewelry stores, small custom boutiques, and high-end production studios, I have seen it all. And I love it!
I specialize in custom one-of-a-kind, wedding, and occasion jewelry. I work mainly in platinum and gold, using precious and semi-precious stones. Evident in every piece is my love of metalwork.
My work has been featured on HGTV, in Martha Stewart Weddings, Bridal Guide, Minnesota Bride and Minnesota Monthly, among others. View Portfolio tab as well as Testimonials to read more.
