"Live the life you imagine”... I’ve been wearing that quote on my sterling wrist cuff for years. Creating makes me happy . I could imagine myself being an artist, but didn’t know if I could make it happen. My artistic spirit kept whispering to me, so I finally took it to heart. I decided to take a chance and devote my time to my craft when I moved to Charleston, SC in 2009 and have been pursuing my dream ever since...
I work primarily in sterling & fine silver but I love rivets! That has led to incorporating copper, brass and aluminum. I’ve also started adding gemstones to some of my pieces, it gives that “earthy organic look” a little sparkle! Give me your favorite quote, saying, words, verse or family names and let me create something just for you! (My pieces are a very thoughtful gift too, so don’t forget that special someone!) I love it when an idea pops into my head, and I need to run and sketch it or write it down before it’s gone! But, just as fun for me, is taking your idea and turning it into something you’ll treasure for years.
