what inspired you to start your business?
My mother used to make jewelry in the Seventies and I always loved to help her make pieces, then she stopped making jewelry and packed her stuff away. I came across her tins filled with goodies when I was a teenager and started messing around. By the time I was 21, I had made quite a few pieces and my friend in Chicago urged me to bring it all out with me when I went to visit her. I sold every single thing at the Chicago Blues Fest!

I am inspired by my materials, and tend to use natural stones, gold, brass and sterling with leather mixed in. I love hammering metals and creating new looks.
