My interest in working with found objects began as a child. Not having many toys, the world around me became my playthings. I would collect beautiful objects and put them together to create something new. Mud pies with pine needles and violets, necklaces of clover.
It is in that same spirit that I make my jewelry now. After 25 years, I still love it all. The collecting, the creating and especially the people I have met while doing so. One of my favorite stories is of a woman who walked up to my booth, looked at everything and then looked at me and said, “You’re the Devil, I want everything here.”
Each object I use has its own story and fills me with wonder. I feel the spirit and connection of the woman who wore it before me, and the workman's hands who built it. It is with this wonder and passion that I create jewelry for you.
