About The artist
As a kid who loved to look with my eyes and my hands there wasn't much that I didn't try to create once the idea was planted in my mind. I also knew very early in life that I wanted to make my own money, mainly because I didn't like asking my parents for money.
With that being said, my first business started in elementary school. I would take candy from a huge bag of candy and make cute mini bags and sell them at school. In middle school I made and sold colorful lanyard key-chains. In high school I created all sorts of pillows; some of the pillows were embroidered as well.
One summer while on college break I tried my hand at a few things I'd always wanted to do, including pottery, woodworking, and then I found jewelry. Initially I took a class so that I could make a necklace that I fell in love with but could not afford at the time. Once I felt the stones in my hands and re-created the necklace, I was hooked. After being enthralled by the feelings of accomplishment, healing, love, and extreme serenity, there was no turning back for me. What started off as a hobby, soon became a business.
