One of my favorite memories from childhood is laying out by the local pool, soaking up the hot sun and making friendship bracelets with my girlfriends. It's a hobby that I never outgrew (the bracelet making, that is... we all know now that the sun is bad news). In fact, I still have all of those boxes of brightly colored embroidery floss in the back of my craft closet somewhere.
While I'll still rock the occasional friendship bracelet, over the years, my style has evolved. It wasn't until a few years ago, when a friend of mine demanded (in the most loving way possible) that I make her a pair of earrings, that I realized I have a product and a brand that others are interested in. It was that moment that my jewelry-making went from a hobby to a small business.
I'm drawn to natural and neutral tones, minimalist style, matte metals and jewelry that is versatile enough to wear with everything from basic jeans and a t-shirt to that special outfit that makes you feel super fancy.
I only make pieces that I love and would wear myself. I also try REALLY hard to keep my jewelry affordable. I know how much (or rather how little) I'm willing to spend on accessories and I try to price my items economically. If someone is looking for a unique, perfectly-priced gift for a friend, or a special treat for themselves, my jewelry line is the way to go!
