I purchased my first set of bench tools, wire and a bench block in 2006, wanting to create my own pair of earrings after falling in love with a strand of Labradorite gemstones. I was quickly enamored with the process of making jewelry and spent the next 9 years moonlighting as a jewelry designer, doing trunk shows, private parties and making pieces for my Etsy shop, in addition to my Creative Director role with two national publications. In 2015, I left my fast-paced and demanding profession to follow my heart and create beautiful jewelry full-time.
Each piece in my collection is handmade from start to finish in our Wisconsin studio. Quality is really important to me. Your jewelry should feel amazing when you wear it and it should stand the test of time. We use the finest materials, including 14k gold filled, rose gold filled & sterling silver wire. Whenever possible, we hand-pick the gemstones in each piece. I find inspiration each day in the beauty of our natural surroundings and the incredible women living in this community. Our studio and showroom is located in Eau Claire, Wisconsin in the Artisan Forge Studio building. When I'm not at the bench, I'm spending time with my husband, Chris and trying to keep up with our two young boys, Heron and Wrennyn.
