I’ve been designing jewelry since childhood and have been passionate about art and fashion as far back as I can remember. As a singer/songwriter, I also have an immense love for music, one of my biggest sources of inspiration. My love for classic and alternative rock and the revolutionary movements behind those genres can be seen directly in my bohemian and rocker styled statement necklaces. The common threads that can be found within each of my designs are some of the things I value most- originality, freedom and nonconformity. Rock & roll’s impact on my work is also reflected in the materials I work with, including leather, satin, various metals and chunky chains and and techniques I like to use that involve fringing, knotting and beadwork. I also love combining different materials for an added effect of originality in my pieces. My goal in creating new jewelry is to create something that looks like most nothing you’ve seen before.
