I am a jeweler and a painter living in Asheville, NC. I started making jewelry when I was six years old. I painted brooches with pumpkin faces to sell at craft shows for Halloween. I grew up thinking of new designs for jewelry all the time. I attended Rhode Island School of Design for Jewelry and Metalsmithing. Today, I continue to be interested in making work that celebrates traditions. I borrow symbols from a variety of spiritual and cultural practices in order to create my own world of sacred objects. Each piece is meant to help each person who wears it feel connected to something mysterious, ancient, and bigger than herself.
