Crosshatch Center for Art & Ecology

My love for beautiful jewelry started in my grandma’s jewelry box. I have fond memories of being a kid playing dress-up at her house wearing probably two pounds of her vintage costume jewelry at once. I gasp thinking of the gorgeous vintage jewelry that I simply lost in the grass while playing outside!

Years ago I started making my own jewelry, after being unable to find just the right pieces I wanted to wear. My adventure into the world of silversmithing allows me to create jewelry with torch and hammer, and I love the dichotomy of a beautiful shiny piece of jewelry against the dust and tools it rises from. My grandma’s influence comes through in the Art Deco and Mid Century Modern style of many of my pieces. I like to create unique designs for today’s woman with a nod to retro style. Part of my collection features “intention” jewelry, rings and bracelets which I hand-stamp with empowering intention words. I play with kinetic designs: most of my earrings have movement, and a staple of my collection is the “fidget ring,” which features discs that spin. I also like to incorporate vintage elements and upcycled materials where I can in an elegant way. Each piece is hand crafted by me, and given a name that suits her personality. The artisan nature of the collection means that each piece will have slight variances that make it a unique keepsake.

I enjoy the time I spend creating these pieces, from the search for beautiful foundation elements to the design and construction of the finished products. Having pretty things around us makes us feel good, and I hope you will feel beautiful wearing my jewelry.

Strong women deserve singular jewelry.
