20 Years ago, when my husband and I had our third child, I decided to leave my job in pediatrics to be home with our children.

I enjoyed watching them learn to crawl, to climb, to find new objects to put in their mouths, to walk, to discover the world and themselves. They reminded me how I had been as a child.

As soon as I had learned to walk, I pocketed every rock I could find, especially if it shimmered.

At five years old, when my parents’ friend—a jeweler!—let me try on a 6 carat, pear cut diamond ring, I wanted to use whatever else I could find—bits of wire, cloth, twigs or grass—to turn all those sparkling rocks I’d found into jewelry.

The funny thing is that all those years later, as a wife with three children, I was still collecting rocks, turquoise and aquamarine, moonstone, and lapis lazuli—anything marbled blue like the sea or as clear as a mountain sky. I still wanted to turn rocks into jewelry. And I wanted not only to be home with my children but also to help my husband provide for them.

So, I started sketching designs into a notebook. I set up a workshop in our bedroom. I learned metalsmithing and how to fire clay.

I discovered Etsy in 2008, and after many, many sleepless nights (and hundreds of caramel lattes) spent pounding silver into rings or bracelets my jewelry shop became a reality.

My workshop has since outgrown the tiny table in the bedroom, but my jewelry remains uniquely handmade.

My husband and I now have seven children.

The kids even lend a hand sometimes!

Every day I am grateful to be able to create from life’s inspirations, especially those rooted in family

I create each piece of jewelry with the hope that it inspires you and your loved ones to celebrate and cherish the most meaningful moments in your lives.
