Growing up, and still residing, on Cape Cod, Massachusetts I am constantly surrounded by inspiration.  From the driftwood scattered on the shore to the seaweed floating gracefully in the bay to the patterns in the sand created by the outgoing tides, the textures of the natural world in my every day life inspire my work. In my designs I often use stones with earth tones but I also am drawn to bright and colorful stones like aquamarine, amethyst and opals to name a few. I love creating one of a kind pieces of jewelry and the hunt for the perfect stones is one of my favorite parts of designing a piece.

I took my first metalsmithing class almost two decades ago. I always have had a love for creating and even as a young child I was creating jewelry from fused glass and beads in my mothers studio. But it wasn't until my early high school years that I truly fell in love with metalsmithing and jewelry design. In 2012 I honed in my skills and received a diploma from The Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco, CA. 

In 2015, after years of selling online and at local shows, I teamed up with my mother, Jenny, and opened our own brick and mortar shop in East Orleans, MA called Adorn.  I handcraft every piece of my jewelry in my studio which resides in the shop.  Customers can browse my full collection at Adorn and take a peek into my studio.
