Atlanta, GA, United States
I began selling jewelry mostly to friends and family. Thanks to them, my business has growing! I love the handmade world!
All of my jewelry is strung on high gauge nylon coated flexible wire with Bali Silver or sterling silver. I use natural & semi-precious stones, freshwater pearls and Swarovski or Czech crystals. I personally select all materials to ensure the best quality

I'm an Army Brat who was born in France to a U.S. Dad and French Mom. I grew up in Europe and Turkey and was lucky enough to have traveled all over the world. I still love the traveling and seeing the fashions and styles of other countries ... which I love incorporating into my "style".
I'm a proud member of The Artisan Group!
