Metal smithing classes in high school got me interested in jewelry design. After college, I interned for Sam Shaw in Maine. As I developed my own distinct style, I began selling my work in galleries and shops. After 7 years in Maine, I headed west and established my own jewelry business. In my semiprecious collection, I combine sterling, fine silver, 14kt & 22kt gold and flush set diamonds. I often use an antique hammer which creates a unique and subtle texture on the metal. The paper collection uses bright Chiyogami paper embedded in resin, in sterling silver settings.
I currently own Workshop, a studio/retail space located in Jackson, Wyoming and feel lucky to live in such a beautiful place. I like to laugh, create, savor, and frolic with husband Doug, daughter Finna, son Tanner, and white faced golden retriever Pema.
