Jewelry shares a little bit about your story with the world.
It can be about who you are, or what you've done, or who is dear to you.
I love hearing the stories behind people's jewelry. I have an odd habit of asking complete strangers to tell me about their jewelry. (One of my other embarrassing habits is that I sometimes spend more time looking at a person's jewelry than making direct eye contact!)
I started making jewelry in elementary school. The first piece of jewelry that I made was for my Mom. It wasbangle bracelet out of sparkly pipe cleaners and a wooden bead. She kept it for almost 20 years.
My great grandfather was a jeweler in New York City around the turn of the 20th century. I never met him, but I carry on his legacy. Jewelry is in my blood.
I traveled almost 2,000 miles to study jewelry design and technology at one of the world's foremost authorities in the jewelry trade, the Gemological Institute of America. It was transformational for me in many ways.
Jewelry Tells Stories
What is your story? What is the story that you want to share through jewelry?
Is it that you have someone close to your heart? Perhaps it's a story of self love? Or maybe you just have mad style and you want everyone to know it!
Whatever it is, I'd be honored if you chose one of my designs to help tell your story.
Follow me on the social platform of your choice, and share with me a part of your story.
