Why are you Artist of the month?
I am an enthusiastic jewelry designer who is always excited to learn new techniques to be creative. I am always trying to challenge myself to bring my clientele’s vision to reality for them. I design jewelry that is not always available in the market making my items distinctive. I hope to bring happiness to people with my jewelry.

What inspires you?
I am inspired by everything in life and in nature. I love looking at other forms of artwork to inspire me besides jewelry design. I can look at textiles and come up with color combinations for a necklace or a pair of earrings. Colors that I would never put together some how come together to make something so unique.

Is there anything else that you would like to create/accomplish that you haven’t already?
The world is my oyster. I would like to explore so many different forms of creativity in the near future. I am interesting in incorporating sewing and hand beading into my designs. I would also like to take formal training to work with diamonds, and welding. Who knows where this collection will be in the next couple of years? I hope to continuously evolve with my work and within myself.

Do have any advice?

My advice for jewelry aficionados is to be creative and make whatever you have your own. You’ll be surprised as to how much talent you may have been born with. Surprise yourself!
