I wish I could tell you that I’ve been creating jewelry my whole life, but that’s not entirely true. I started when I was 12, selling beaded necklaces to my school friends for a quarter. I took a break (for a couple of decades) and studied accounting, radiation therapy, and music, but I finally found my passion making and designing jewelry when I attended the Maine College of Art, in Portland, Maine. I cannot believe that I actually do something that is so rewarding and so much darn fun and actually get paid for it. I am blessed.
I choose ONLY to use argentium sterling silver from recycled resources and produce my offerings in a way that doesn’t harm the earth or its people. In a business where producing just one ring can produce 5 TONS of environmental waste, I don’t think there’s any alternative.
