GOLDSMITH

I dream, live and breathe jewellery.

I have been making jewellery since i was a child, starting with stringing
beads then progressing to selling wire wrapped sea glass at my grandmothers
store when I was 12.

I was able to begin to translate all the designs in my mind when I took my first silversmithing class in 2007. I make every piece start to finish with my two hands and a few simple tools. Working with reclaimed sterling silver and gold and responsibly sourced semiprecious and precious stones, I use traditional goldsmithing techniques such as filing, piercing, forming, soldering, and polishing to create contemporary and functional designs.

I believe in getting my hands dirty in order to make something that will last. I am a one woman show, and wear all the hats, from designer to manufacturer, accountant to janitor.

I make jewellery to bring people joy. It brings me great satisfaction to see someone walk away with a huge smile on their face and a piece of my jewellery adorning their body or tucked in a box to be gifted to a loved one. A piece to be cherished; a future heirloom.
