Jewelry has been a huge part of my life since I was a little girl. I remember getting my ears pierced when I was 11 and then wearing my first pair of dangly earings. Those earings, the way they felt when they touched the side of my face when I moved, was potent. I have worn jewelry as a simple accessory but more often jewelry has been part of my armor. Jewelry has helped me share parts of myself with the world. It has also made me feel safe, with stacks of bracelets on my wrists, it has been a shield. Jewelry has been my language.
As I work with metal, fire and stone I feel more connected to me. And now I feel like I get to share my language with you
