"Why do you put yourself together and put on jewelry if you’re just going to be home with the kids?" My husband asked me this question one day.
You see, I was a stay-at-home mom of young kids. His intentions were pure -- he was truly trying to understand why I would take the time to do this when I may not even leave the house.
The truth of the matter was that I was likely going to be covered in spit-up and PB&J, but it was important to me that I still felt like a woman with style.
At certain times in our lives, we as women can start to feel invisible, especially when you have a heart to give and give to others.
I create jewelry for women who refuse to be invisible.
I create for you so that you are reminded that you still have this vibrant, unique, stylish soul inside of you even if you are covered in PB&J or taking care of aging parents.
I love taking something utilitarian like sheet metal or wire and making something beautiful with it that you will love to wear as a piece of art. Check out this video to get a unique glimpse into my studio!
You deserve to have style that stands out - just like YOU.
All My Best,
Founder & Designer
