A Little Bit Of Who I Am
A Crystal Enthusiast with a Gypsy Soul
I come from a family of creatives, growing up on a family farm where my parents used their talents to make sure we never noticed the lack of material possessions. My mother gardened and sewed all of our clothes (and the most wonderful quilts); my father raised the animals and built all the barns as our little farm grew. Together, they instilled in me the appreciation for craft, the value in hand made, and the understanding that a little of ourselves going into everything we create.
I rebelled a bit against my artsy upbringing and found myself in a scientific job behind a desk, Astrophysics to be precise. Interesting as a subject, but I never really fit in, I was always searching. Following my heart has led me on a winding path to where I am now, creating accessories that highlight the natural, raw beauty in the world. I travel all over the southwest to find the perfect stones, each one is hand selected by me for that extra something they seem to radiate.
Beauty to me does not lay in perfection, which means the stones I naturally end up with are selected for character and depth. I find myself inspired by the unique energy of each stone, and sometimes when inspiration lags, a good old fashioned desert hike is all I need to get back into design.
I am also fascinated by the metaphysical studies that surround crystals. The place they have held in many cultures over the course of history shows their pull on our collective psyche, and the majesty of a stone that has been part of the earth for millions of years before becoming part of the jewelry I make is what inspires me the most.
While I may have left that little farm behind long ago, and lived all over, I still apply those learnings to everything I do. My jewelry is an extension of all the experiences I have been lucky to have, and I’m excited to share that little bit of me with anyone who wears it.
Established in 2014, the brand is now multi channel, selling online and in select stores throughout the country. All items are handmade with care and intent in my studio in Las Vegas, NV.
