BORED WITH WHAT'S IN YOUR
Maybe that necklace that you picked up on vacation seemed like just the right souvenir, but it’s just not calling to you. Do you have pieces in your jewelry box that you never wear? I can help! Through my custom design program, we can collaborate to create something new and exciting by taking the best elements from your tired pieces and adding some new elements.
WHAT GOES INTO MY JEWELRY?
All of my metals are 14K gold fill, sterling silver, oxidized sterling silver or 22K gold vermeil.
My semi precious stones are from natural sources and are not chemically enhanced. Pearls are identified as to type and origin. When I use wood, shell, leather, cord or crystals, I check the sources carefully, especially for lead in any base metals.
I WOULD LOVE TO CREATE SOMETHING FOR YOU!
I love taking commissions. It gives me the opportunity to create exactly what you want. And if you’re looking for the perfect gift for someone special, a commissioned piece is something you’ll love to give. giveOne of my favorite things is to create a special piece just for you, especially if you intend to give it as a gift.

Your jewelry should avoid contact with sunscreen, lotions, perfume, hairspray and cleaning products. Wipe your pieces with a clean soft cloth after wearing and store each piece carefully in its own bag or compartment. To discourage tarnishing, keep your silver out of the light and out of damp environments like the bathroom. Check pieces frequently for wear and tear. When putting on your stretch bracelets, point your fingers together and roll the bracelet over your hand and onto your wrist.
