The Idea

My mission... living an artful life. Living and working with a passion for expression.  I approach the design process with the intention of giving each piece my own unique perspective and style.  Inspiration for my work comes from natural elements, a love of fashion and the pursuit of personal style.   Self-taught, my process is “all in” and a bit chaotic. Once a draft is complete, I edit, re-work and refine.

Style & Quality

My accessories are modern, bold, eclectic and at the same time effortless and cool. Inspired pieces for everyday style.  
Natural fabrics including cotton, linen and leather are hand selected.  Gemstones, precious metals and vintage finds make up my thoughtfully crafted jewelry designs. Careful attention to detail and functionality is given to each piece. All designs are handmade from start to finish by me in my small studio in Columbus, Ohio.

100% Handmade

Hand dyed fabrics are processed using the ancient technique of shibori. Natural fibers are folded, wrapped, tied and manipulated to produce beautiful designs and shapes, each completely unique and distinct. Indigo dye is used to achieve varying shades of saturation. Leathers and hides are also unique in that no two will be exactly the same. Straps and fringe are hand cut and machine stitched. All finished pieces are carefully crafted for function and beauty.
