First, I am a daughter of the KING (That’s what the Bible tells me and I love hanging out on that truth!) My faith is central to everything I do, but it’s a about a relationship, not a set of rules! Jesus said to love God and love others… see? Definitely relationship!!
I am also WIFE to my most amazing husband for 29 years! I am MOM to 4 fantastic children! None of us are perfect, we mess up and hurt each other sometimes, but that’s just a part of being in relationship.
And that same driving passion flows into my business… Yes, I love designing and making jewelry, but at the heart of all I do is relationship… my relationship with the people of Swaziland and Honduras (you can read about that story here) and my relationship with all of the people I meet along the way of this amazing journey.
In my years of doing this, I can tell you so many stories about the people I’ve met. More than once a customer has said to me, “I can’t believe you remember…” maybe it’s the first piece of jewelry they bought, a new hairstyle or something they shared with me that happened in their life. The lives, the stories and hopes and dreams of the people I meet, matter to me.
It is the stories of our lives that inspire me… words, in my stamped pieces, that call us to be who we were created to be or encourage us to persevere… places we’ve visited… themes in nature that whisper to our hearts… colors and textures that remind us of the beauty all around us.
My greatest hope is that you will find pieces in my collections that inspire you and connect with your story… that make you feel beautiful in your story. If you do, I would love for you to send me a picture and tell me your story.
The tree is inspired by my life passage from Isaiah 61:1-3. The soldered stone is my own way of framing nature’s masterpieces. You Are Beautiful, Enough, Loved & Strong, sometimes we all need to be reminded.

Word of the Year: Rhythm
Rhythm is a consistent recurring sequence of events, actions or processes. I’m trying to find a way to reframe the idea of structure and process to make it fun. I need order in my life!
