“My inspiration to create beautiful pieces of jewelry began with an infinite connection to the earth. I have fond memories of collecting stones off river banks, seashells and agates off the ocean shores through my travels to Europe and my home in New York. As I continued my artistic journey I became obsessed with drop dead gorgeous crystals and gemstones. Their undeniable raw beautiful captivates me. Magnificent colors, shapes, textures and form lend themselves to design principles that endlessly ignite my passion to create.”

About her personality…
“People are kind to me. I attract who I am. I am not interested in loss or taking. If I am in your life it’s to give. What I receive money can’t buy. I receive loyalty and love. This is just who I am. I don’t feel the need to be motivated, it’s a natural process. It’s also very important for me to have healthy minds around me. I am not drawn to negativity and self-destruction. I’m drawn to positive vibes, dreamers and believers in life. Your vibe attracts your tribe.” 

About jewelry designers that inspire her…

“Julie Cooper! Her dedication to her craft, her intellect and passion are felt through her designs. She’s an artist, business woman and an entrepreneur. I would also like to mention Sylva Flores whom I’ve learned from tons! I love having awesome badass powerful talented women around me. Makes me step up my game and always strive for excellence.”

What makes her the happiest…
“Spending time with the dreamers, believers, creative artists, humanitarians, entrepreneurs and others who seem intelligent. I love being around intelligence, it’s how I learn different perspectives. Some folks have explosive energy and their vibe is intoxicating. To be with others that live life to the fullest, fearlessly! That makes me the happiest.”

“Being able to inspire others, to pass on the knowledge I have to a budding artist or a person of talent but doesn’t know how to start.. Seeing someone believe in themselves is everything! Building up others strengths is where it’s at!”

How does she choose material for her custom jewelry…

“When choosing crystals and gemstones I’m focusing on size, shape, color, form and texture. I’m drawn to specific shapes that lend themselves with my designs. Inspiration comes from the crystals! They are so unique and beautiful, it’s easy for me to want to create while around such natural beauty. In fact I need to be in my studio at least 4 times a week designing. It’s truly medicinal for me. Completely grounds me instantly.
When I’m outsourcing crystals and gemstones I’m sorcing vintage pearls, beads and baubles as well. When I happen upon a treasure, it comes home with me, I may not design with it immediately. Eventually my inspiration kicks in and suddenly I’m executing my vision. It’s magical to create.”

Her favorite piece of jewelry…

“My favorite piece of jewelry is a vintage Navaho slave bracelet. 14k gold, sterling silver, turquoise and coral. My friend Julie Cooper is a metal smith with her own studio in pdx, she has a great eye for design and sources the most divine vintage designs to pair with her own artisan jewelry she creates. This piece is outstanding, I have much respect for the workmanship and detail. This piece is worn everyday!”
