What inspires your work?
My work is inspired by my surroundings and personal growth. I love using brass, wood, stones and natural resources to get in touch with nature – my true inspiration. Music and quotes also inspire my work and at times, I will hand stamp my favorites onto my pieces. I incorporate these items to create an ethereal, gypsy style.
Where do you find pieces for your jewelry?
Supplies for my jewelry come from various places. I do a lot of online purchasing, but I also shop for vintage/used jewelry to up-cycle and use as supplies as well. This creates unique, one-of-a-kind pieces that become exclusive to their owner.
Is there any other type of art you like to do?
Some other areas of art that I enjoy working with are ceramics, lost wax casting and photography.
