From Stowe, VT, I now reside in Sarasota, FL, with my family. I am a graduate of the internationally acclaimed Ringling College of Art & Design. After managing and directing my own ad agency for 18 years, I took some time off to raise my loves - our two boys. During the hiatus, I needed to continue expressing my creativity and chose jewelry as my medium. I am having a ball...still!
My vision is to design and create contemporary jewelry that captures both the timeless romance of the classic pearl and the joie de vivre of today's empowered woman. Using mostly pearls, golds and silvers, I try to capture the elegance of ' high society of days gone by' with a 'Must See Twist!'
