Comtemporary heirloom jewelry - where stones have style!
like handmade, especially when itís made with love!
I come from a family that believed in hand-made: my
grandmother was a clothing designer, grandpa was a tailor, dad was a haberdasher, mom is a baker...and I am a
jewelry designer! As a child I was learned to support the artistís community. When I travel and when Iím home, I
visit art fairs, festivals, and galleries for inspiration. Wherever I can find exceptional pieces by extraordinary
designers, I try to take a bit of their inspiration home with me.
My favorite handmade piece is a recycled
penny parking meter; the head is original and the pedestal stand is a wonderful bright orange with duck feet as
the base. Iíve had it for over 15 years and itís still the best conversation piece I have ever owned. And the best
part? It still works!!!
