I fell in love with my craft when I took a metalsmithing/wax class long ago in high school. The years flew by, but jewelry was always on my mind. I spent a large part of my adult life in corporate retail finance for a large company based in Seattle, WA. Constantly surrounded by fashion, I was energized by the high style and art surrounding me, but always yearned to be more creative. I ultimately decided to revisit my love for design and craft. I began a mentorship program at a local studio and have been creating and designing ever since.
