 Jewelry has been around for over 100,000 years, even predating tattoos by up to 50,000 years. Since humans wore clothing, the desire to honor the body through adornment has been central to every culture and civilization up through today. Jewelry allows people to express their innermost feelings, faith, lineage, their sense of individuality, and their commitment to others. 

Jewelry is a uniquely wearable expression of art, a well crafted tangible memento that can be cherished for lifetimes. Fine jewelry like the kind I make is made to be valued, worn, and loved.
