THE STORY ~ “Little did I know that moving to the Dominican Republic six years ago, would start my journey as a jeweler. I quickly became a beachcomber with a desire to learn something new. My first designs were made from brass shapes I hand cut with my saw and sea glass I found along the shores. Over the years, I have worked on my metal smithing skills and have slowly grown this business to be what it is today. After living in the DR for four years, my partner and I made the big move to CA where I decided to put all my energy towards this jewelry business.
My designs are inspired by the natural world. I’ll go through seasons where I have an obsession with a certain element of nature. These then turn into the themes of my collections. Lately, that obsession has been seaweed. On beach walks the common sight of these sea plants washed ashore began to call out to my attention. I also became instantly mesmerized by the sway and swirl of theses sea plants underwater. I know I share the feeling, and so it is my intention to create pieces that could be your personal touchstone to the natural world
