Biography

GROWING UP IN NC, I WAS ALWAYS INVOLVED IN DESIGN. ABOVE ALL CREATIVE OUTLETS, I WAS CAPTIVATED WITH JEWELRY DESIGNING. WHAT INITIALLY WAS A HOBBY BECAME A SIDE BUSINESS AS PEOPLE LITERALLY BEGIN BUYING MY DESIGNS OFF MY NECK. I HAVE BUILT UP YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN CREATING JEWELRY FOR FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

A PERFECTIONIST, I EXECUTE MY VISION WITH THE FINEST CRAFTSMANSHIP AND PRECIOUS MATERIALS, ALLOWING UNIQUE DETAILS TO REMAIN AT THE CORNERSTONE OF MY COLLECTIONS. ULTIMATELY, THIS COMBINATION INFUSES MY DESIGNS WITH ECCENTRIC AND GRACE. WHEN MIXED WITH INDIVIDUAL STYLE, EACH PIECE TAKES ON A LIFE OF ITS OWN. I AM ABLE TO CREATE BEAUTIFUL DESIGNS FOR ANY OCCASION.

I STUDIED @CREATIVE AMBIANCE INTERIOR DESIGNS, FASHION DESIGN @ MILLER BUSINESS COLLEGE AND I ALSO TOOK SILVERSMITH @ FORSYTH TECH.

MY DESIGNS HAVE BEEN @ GAIA ON COMMISSION AS WELL AS HARMONY STUDIO WHICH WAS LOCATED IN THE ART DISTRICT OF WINSTON, WHERE KINDRED SPIRITS IS LOCATED NOW.

FAVORITE MATERIALS:
COPPER, RECYCLED GLASS, STERLING, BURLAP AND SILKS.
