Where it all started.
I started making handmade jewelry as a kid. I would take colored wires from my dad's trucking business and tie those into knots and braids. I sold a few of those very first creations and the rest I gave to my friends and family. I dabbled in charm necklaces in high school, selling them at a video store in a small town in Southern Utah.
Fast forward life to college and work and I stopped making pretty things. When my kids started having class projects due, things got serious… haha.
We built a model of our house out of popsicle sticks and wallpaper remnants, an 'under the sea' report on sea creatures with silhouettes and glitter (lots of glitter), and some of the best science fair project displays anyone has ever seen.
I wonder if teachers do this on purpose, knowing how much work the parents do on said projects, compared to the kids? ;)
I started creating handmade jewelry again in 2011. I was searching for the perfect necklace to go with an outfit for work. I wanted a bronze chain with a yellow rose. Simple right? Not so much. Just about everything I found was exactly the opposite of what I was looking for… and everything that came close had a price range that definitely didn't match the quality.
So I made my own.
And so, it began. I haven't looked back since. My styles have changed over the years, and I'm currently addicted to making hand stamped jewelry. Personalized jewelry is one of my favorite things to make and wear because it can hold so much sentimental value. Something as simple as a coordinate necklace stamped with your child’s birth place or a grown-up friendship bracelet can make you feel connected to those you love and keep you grounded.
When I'm not holed up in my basement studio, you can find me listening to the latest teenage daughter drama, playing board games with my son, or playing taxi for my two kids. They are my world and they remind me every day how precious life is.
When I manage to find time for myself, you can find me curled up with a cup of tea and my newest book. While I do own a Kindle, I'm still very much in love with REAL books.
All of my pieces are created one at a time, with love, in the heart of Wyoming. I hand solder all the components of my pieces for durability. You won't have to worry about catching it on something and having the jump ring bend, leaving you with a piece of jewelry you won't be able to wear. The beauty of handmade jewelry is that I can see and touch every piece before I send it off to make sure it’s perfect — a machine could never do that.
I stand behind every piece I make. If at any time you're unhappy with your purchase, contact me and I'll do everything I can to make it right. I respond very quickly to questions and concerns and love a great custom challenge.
Don't see what you're looking for? No problem, just shoot me a message. I'm positive that together, we can create the perfect piece, just for you.
