I love working with raw fresh water pearls!

The colorful nacre and varied textural surfaces inspire and bring great pleasure. They are mysterious, like snowflakes; no two are exactly the same.

According to Dr. Peschek-Bohmer, pearls ~ first worn by Queen Achmenid 4,000 years ago ~ are believed to have legendary healing properties that promote wisdom and contentment well into old age when worn close to the skin.

My jewelry designs are one of a kind, comprised of raw, fresh water pearls
and other gem stones, including: amber, amethyst, citrine, coral, jasper, lapis lazuli, and faceted quartz. Working with these natural precious gifts has become a passion for me.

Earrings, necklaces and bracelets are modern expressions of a traditionally classic look ~ jewelry for daily wear, or for dressier occasions. People have told me that they feel like casual elegance when wearing my designs.

I invite you to get your family heirloom out of the drawer ~ let’s create a unique piece of wearable art that will fill you with joy. For those not in the Asheville area we can meet via FaceTime.
