Born and raised on the beautiful Maine coast, I grew up cherishing handmade items crafted by my mom, grandmothers and other family members. My mom used to make all of our clothes when we were little and my great-grandmother tatted lace doilies and other things. My aunt taught me "fancy work" (her term for embroidery) and I still use that for relaxation when I make counted cross stitch items for weddings and gifts.
Jewelry making was never something that I did in my younger years, but fell in love with all of the colorful possibilities when I visited a bead shop on the coast of Maine with a friend. Overwhelmed with all of the stones, crystals, and materials, I proudly created my first necklace and earring set from blue glass and sterling silver (I still have it today!). Bitten by the jewelry bug, I made pieces for family, friends, and coworkers. I started selling to those outside my family circle in 2007.
Today I live and work in NH, with the ever-changing New England seasons providing inspiration for my pieces. My approach to creating jewelry is minimalistic - letting each item reflect their own personality and beauty through simple design with a modern feel. Unique and affordable sterling silver jewelry, many available with a personalized touch, that is made with quality materials and careful construction. Swarovski crystal elements ®, assorted gemstones, and freshwater pearls add punches of vibrant color to some pieces, while other items maintain the cool feeling of sterling silver to catch your eye or capture your imagination.
I hope you enjoy browsing through my store and find something that “speaks” to you.
