Often the jewelry we wear is linked with a memorable story; reminding us of a special occasion, an unforgettable person, or a precious moment. My handmade creations are not just jewelry, but they are colorful reflections and reminders of the places I have been fortunate enough to live, travel to, explore and visit. Often I design a necklace based on my impressions of a faraway place that I hope to someday experience. Each original piece is a glimpse into the adventure and beauty of a lifestyle, culture, dream or impression of another part of our world. There are many types of accessories but I chose to specialize and focus on designing necklaces because I believe in their universal power to transform your look and project a bold, stylish, fresh and creative image. Unlike many accessories, a necklace is usually quite predominant and visible, in addition to often being one of the first impressions you notice when talking to someone. I find it interesting that it makes a physical and emotional statement, being just below your smile and right next to your heart. I aim to create stunning, colorful, memorable and unique pieces that can influence your mood, express your style, make an impression, compliment your personality and complete your outfit-- whether you are dressed up with a black dress or dressed down with a white t-shirt. I strive to design spirited, fun and playful pieces that can stand on their own. Designing for versatility, color, composition and boldness, I aim to create something striking and unexpected. Whether you are looking for something for a special occasion or simply just something special for you, we all deserve to create or choose that perfect, one-of-a-kind necklace that projects, defines, compliments, and enhances the one-of-a-kind beauty and personality in all of us.
