My jewelry line started out with my love of seaglass- Nature’s way of upcycling broken glass that had made its way into our waters. It has since evolved into finding ways to reuse, re-purpose, and upcycle all kinds of fun materials to create fun, funky, unique pieces of jewelry.

Old tins are transformed into whimsical earrings and bracelets, wool sweaters are felted and re purposed in fun brooches, men’s silk ties- of course I will make them into bracelets, Not to mention the glass I’ve scavenged from a local glass blowing studio to give a second chance.

I seldom see these objects for what they are, rather what they will be in their next chapter. Such a fun way to look at life!!!
