Custom Jewelry Designs have been a huge part of my Jewelry Business for the last 20 years. Designing, dreaming, collaborating to come up with a Unique, One of a Kind piece of Jewelry for you. The Custom Design process can be done through a series of messages, sketches and photos. It's amazing what technology offers to allow the Custom Designing process to flow with ease. Each piece that I custom make is filled with the love and stories of the collaborators. It takes a beautiful One of a Kind creation to a whole new level. A Forever Heirloom with a story to tell. It would be an honor to create something for you. I love being a part of your story, especially the surprises!
For me making art was always my favorite thing to do even from childhood.... It wasn't until Art School in college that i took my first Metalsmithing class and as soon as I touched the metal i knew that was what I wanted to do. Studying Metalsmithing at East Carolina University, Montana State University, Italy. I had various apprenticeships with a famous Italian Goldsmith Lisa Sotilis (she owns DeChirico's Sculpture Collection), Montana blacksmiths, swordsmiths and lapidary artists. Ultimately I received a BFA in Metal Design. After that began my own business and have been happily making jewelry for the last 20 years. I love what I do and i hope to make something for you!
