I have always loved the process of taking raw materials and creating something beautiful with them. While in college I took a few silversmithing classes and loved it. Jewelry making became a regular hobby for me. It is how I relax and unwind. In 2009, I opened my Etsy shop. What was once a hobby has become a full time business. I couldn't be happier with my job! I feel very blessed to be able to spend my time doing what I love!
My products are made by hand, by me in my home studio, in Utah. I like to make a wide variety of items. It is fun to explore and try new techniques and methods of jewelry making (I only wish I had time to learn them all!).
I get much of my inspiration from Mother Nature. Gemstones, turquoise, silver, pearls and leather are a few of my favorite materials to work with. I love to use them to create beautiful pieces that can be worn and enjoyed day after day and year after year.
My best selling items are my tiny hoop earrings. Back in high school I had a pair of similar hoop earrings that I loved and wore regularly. Somehow I lost them over the years. In 2009 I made myself a new pair and began selling them online. The simple minimalist design is loved by so many people. I frequently hear stories from my customers who tell me they have searched for years to find simple little hoops and how grateful they are to find my shop.
As my business has grown, I've added three amazing employees: Lisa, Emily and Johanna. They have each learned how to make the little hoop earrings and help us keep the stock up to meet the demand. They also prepare and package orders and help with customer inquiries.
When I am not creating jewelry, I enjoy life with my husband and my three beautiful kids. Thanks for looking at our shop!
