The Willow is known as a tree of dreaming & enchantment associated with poets and spells of fascination.
I began an appreciation for creating as an art room weirdo trying my hand at everything from watercolor, printmaking, collage & ceramics. I continued my education in the arts and went on to receive my BFA in Fashion Design & Fine Arts from OTIS College of Art and Design.
Soon after, my one time hobby of jewelry design became my primary passion.
I have studied silversmithing and metal casting and am certified in crystal healing, gemstone therapy and Reiki.
Each design is hand carved by me and cast in DTLA using the lost wax process.
My jewelry is inspired by surrealism, mysticism and symmetries found in nature. My high lies in meeting a complete stranger and feeling at home with them through the discussion of process, art & magic.
I reside in Los Angeles and have two rescue mutts, Wilkie & Clyde, and two red eared slider turtles, Sly & Hillel.
Each design is created and fabricated in Los Angels, Ca.
