have always known what I wanted to do when I grow up. I remember when I was a child, I was designing necklaces, bracelets, and earrings in my free time. I looked at antique jewelry for inspiration and found myself creating designs that paired periods such as Art Nouveau, Art Deco, and Edwardian with the modern needs of today. It has been a pleasure creating the Fusion Collection, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
It is of the utmost importance for me to receive the best education in my field. I attended the Gemological Institute of America in Carlsbad, California, and graduated in 2005 with degrees in Graduate Jewelry (G.J.), Graduate Gemology (G.G.), and Applied Jewelry Arts (A.J.A). With the encouragement of instructor Mark Maxwell, I went on to further my education at the HTL School of Engraving in Steyr, Austria. I was thrilled and honored to study under Master Engraver Martin Strolz.
