It is so much fun to make something with my own hands that goes on tobecome a part of someone else's life. At this very moment somebodysomewhere out there might be feeding their kids, going to the gym,writing a novel, laughing with girlfriends over cosmos, or having aromantic dinner... all while wearing something I made. It's thrillingwhen something I make suits somebody so perfectly. Doing trunk shows isfun because it gives me a chance to see how things look on a variety ofpeople.
I had an art gallery for while and learned to make jewelry rather unexpectedly while popping in on a class at my own gallery in 2008. I got hooked within minutes. The infatuation has continued and I now sell the jewelry at trunk shows, galleries and local shops, as well as my two online stores. My philosophy is to create beautiful pieces that can be worn everyday or for an occasion, alone or layered for a more stylized look. I like to think my jewelry enhances the beauty of the woman wearing it. I don't want people to see the jewelry wearing the woman, rather the woman wearing the jewelry. I love working with color, color and more color. Semi-precious stones such as chalcedony, amethysts and aquamarines are among my favorites. I am happy to do custom orders, and love working with other creative people to create the perfect piece. My studio workspace migrates between my loft overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in Long Island NY and mountain house in the Catskills in a little place we have up there. You can't beat the silence and beauty of these kinds of landscapes. The pink sunsets on Long Island are really inspiring.
