My pieces are inspired by the exotic and beautiful places of my travels. Imagine beautiful volcanic islands, crystal blue waters, sandy beaches, and lush tropical flowers. These are my inspiration. I collect rare and unusual precious and semi-precious stones, glass, and pearls from the places I visit. I borrow exotic designs from the colors and forms I see in the natural beauty around me. Please know that when you buy from me all of the components are of the highest quality. I use only genuine gemstones, cultured pearls, and imported glass. All metals are sterling silver, fine silver or 14KT, 18KT or 22 KT gold. I have been traveling, photographing, collecting, and making beautiful jewelry for the last 8 years. I hope you will enjoy wearing each piece as much as I enjoyed designing it.
