Thank you all for welcoming me to deviant art! I'm excited to be sharing my work with all of you!
I have been making jewelry for more than ten years, primarily for friends and family. My style has developed and matured since then, and I'm now creating styles from vintage pieces and found objects. This started with the piece seen in my profile picture, which is a collection of charms, pins, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings that my loved ones have given me over the years. By putting them into one piece, I can carry those pieces with me all at once.
This is why I love jewelry - not only because it's a fun accessory and new medium to work with, but because it has meaning. While I love making my own jewelry, I actually prefer creating work from other people's pieces or family heir looms into something that can have meaning for them. Whether it is a gift for a friend, bridal party gifts, or a way of wearing your grandmother's brooch in a modern way, I love the process of designing for you.
Thank you all again for your views, comments, and support!!
