Creating jewelry using the ancient practice of lost-wax carving is a spiritual experience for me. Be a co-creator in my new collection!

Your support will fund my new line, Magical Light and Dark Nights Collection. I will be doing my FIRST trade show COUER LA in downtown Los Angeles in October 2012. I am so excited and by supporting my project I will be able to showcase my new collection to retail buyers and taste makers!!

Inspired by the spiritual light present in the darkness, 'Magical Light’ represents the strength of the human spirit, which is present in ‘Dark Nights’ and difficult situations that we face in this world!  The 'dark night' is regarded by mystics and others as a blessing in disguise.

Understanding the importance of seeing the ‘artist’s hand’ in works of art influences me when I create jewelry and it is a spiritual experience for me. I meditate before creating my designs which allows me to be used as a creative vessel. My inspirations come from all forms of art and everyday life. I use the ancient practice of lost-wax carving. All pieces are uniquely one-of-a-kind and handmade by me.

  All rewards will make gorgeous gifts for yourself or someone special.
