A lifelong artist and maker, I enjoy working with a variety of materials. My creative goal is to connect my customers to nature, but in a purposeful, elegant and useful way. Bohemian minimalist jewelry; hand-bound mini journals that are practical and portable; hand-knotted bookmarks with a touch of nature on both ends. All are designed with great thought and deliberate function.
I create with whatever materials catch my eye on a given day, whether a string of beads, an object or plant found on a walk, or a beautiful sheet of handmade paper for a new journal. Be sure to browse through my site and see what catches *your* eye!
