I create jewelry because it gives me an escape from the daily grind. Sometimes life can overwhelm us—bills have to be paid, children have to be fed, houses have to be cleaned, spouses need our time and attention — and it’s not always pretty. By taking a few hours a week to sit back, relax, and making something whose only purpose is beauty (ars gratia artis), I find myself able to maintain balance.

My favorite materials change based on my mood and what I have on hand. I find myself being drawn to pearls because of their versatility and simple beauty. I prefer to make pieces that exude a sense of elegance, grace, and luxury, and I believe a pearl encapsulates those qualities.
