Inspired by the romance of the past, I have a passion for creating jewelry that evokes another era. You will see in my pieces an variety of influences: Victorian, Art Deco, Noveau, Gothic, medieval, and Pre-Raphaelite. I use only high quality components and metals that are nickel and lead free. I particularly enjoy working with antiqued brass and silver, Czech glass beads, and Swarovski crystals and rhinestones. Much of the metal filigree I use is made in the USA and replicated from the original vintage dies.
Founded in 2009, we are located in a small village near the lakes and mountains in beautiful New Hampshire, USA. My studio space is in a loft area of my Tudor style cottage. I share my home with three crazy - but loveable - cats that "help" me work. My wonderful son and daughter have flown the nest, and are now busy pursuing their own careers and creative passions.
Thank you for your interest in my work. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or special requests. I truly appreciate my customers, and love meeting kindred spirits.
