As far back as I can remember I have had a love of fashion. My grandmother taught me to crochet at age 7 and I started making crochet headbands and hats for everyone I knew. Then, at age 8, my mom taught me to sew. It was then that I made my first mini skirt, hot pink with a heart sewn on the back. What can I say, it was the 90's. Finally, my mom began to teach me to make jewelry in high school, and I fell in love! I have since continued to increase my skill level and learn new techniques in order to create in new ways. I have found wire wrapping to be my absolute favorite! When I create with wire I enter into a meditative state and do not return until I have created something beautiful. I put a lot of love into every piece of jewelry that I create and I feel truly blessed to be able to share it with the world. My jewelry is heavily influenced by the styles of ancient cultures (especially egyptian culture), as well as the southwestern styles of Mexico, and, of course, the bohemian trends of the 1970's. It is my hope that you find something special in my shop, something that truly speaks to you, and makes you feel like the goddess that you are. Have fun browsing, and feel free to contact me with any questions.
