She is a Pennsylvania-based nature lover and small-batch jewelry designer/instructor, who specializes in wire working techniques featuring semi-precious stones, freshwater pearls, and assorted conflict-free metals. She loves things naturally beautiful like fresh-picked strawberries or sweet-scented pink peonies that have imperfections, like the freshwater pearls and semi-precious stones she uses. Each piece may have some extra lines, blemishes, and even inclusions, giving each unique piece character.
