A native New Yorker, I've never lost my "New York State of Mind"! I started out teaching art in the NYC public schools and came to designing jewelry by a leap of faith. The many years in between were filled with various artistic and business adventures. I was a textile designer and colorist, owning a large Manhattan design studio. An antique dealer with a wonderful, eclectic shop Grey Gardens right in the heart of Soho! Add in a personal trainer, jazz and blues vocalist, painter and you have a good part of my story.
An afternoon picnic in Central Park with a handful of beads led to creating a pair of earrings which were admired and purchased by a lady passing by. Taking that as my cue, I took to the streets of Manhattan with my jewelry and never looked back.
Over the past 18 years, my work has been sold in many Museum Shops including The Whitney and The Philadelphia Museum of Art. I have also participated in prominent art festivals throughout the country. I have met so many wonderful customers, and the good fortune of having them come back to see me repeatedly. My desire is to offer you new and exciting pieces so that you feel you are on a treasure hunt when you shop here, and so I am always experimenting with innovative ideas bringing you exciting new pieces all of the time!
My clients are woman who are very distinctive in their style, seeking accessories that show the world exactly who they are, strong women, wanting to make a statement.
