Jewelry is something I’ve loved ever since I was a little girl playing dress-up; now I consider it the finishing touch that helps me face the day. I always wear earrings (probably because getting my ears pierced at age 13 was a hard-won victory that I’m still celebrating), and I don’t feel dressed without my wedding band and my watch. Although I love all of my designs, there are a few that are extra special. Pictured above are the pieces that I've added (or would love to add) to my personal collection. As you can see, I am drawn to color, sparkle and KAPOW!

I first started my collection because I could picture the jewelry I wanted to wear, but couldn’t find it: simple and elegant pieces with meaning. One of my first designs was actually a redesign of a pair of earrings that had belonged to my Nana. Since I designed the new pair to my own taste, I wear them much more often than I would have had they remained as Nana had them, and each time I put them on they remind me of her. Below you can see the earrings, which launched the Classical Collection, and two rings I created for myself from other meaningful pieces that were sitting unworn in my jewelry box. If you have pieces you aren't wearing, or want to work together on a design you've been envisioning, contact me! I'd love to help you create something you will want to wear every day.

I will always love to wear jewelry and I encourage you to wear some every day that gives you a “lift” (as Nana would say), even if you don't have a Zoom call scheduled.
