I was born in Germany in the early 1970s and moved to America in the early 1990s. I have always had a desire to create things, whether it be gardening, clothing, crafts and now, sterling silver jewelry. In 2009 I started working for a local silversmith where I apprenticed for 2 years. After two years I came out with my own line of jewelry. My love of gardening and being close to the seashore is where I get the inspiration for many of my designs. The shape of a flower’s petal or the wings of a dragonfly mirrored in sterling silver speak to me of nature and the beauty of our Earth.
