  • Growing up in a creative home, it wasn’t surprising that at a young age I fell in love with the arts. Loving to express myself through my hands, I realized “Designing Jewelry” would be my career. I began a jewelry repair apprenticeship in Davis, CA. I learned to repair antique as well as modern jewelry. Craving to learn more about the art of jewelry making, I spent three months in Europe observing and examining the many different styles and techniques the Europeans offered. I then finished a 5-year apprentice program with a master jeweler in Carmel CA. I learned the fine art of hand fabrication, stone setting, and design. In 1989 I opened my own business and developed a line of jewelry which can be found in jewelry stores, galleries and online stores. I currently live in Salinas, Ca where I continue to work on new designs.
