My Creative Jewelry Style

My Creative Jewelry Style

My jewelry is made to be worn more on a casual dress style. It works well with those everyday casual wear, office work or with a simple black dress for a night out. I don't create with flashy colors or stones because it's not "my" personal preference. I say all this because I want you to know that even though I don't create often outside that box, I CAN and WILL create more elaborate and upscale jewelry for anyone that requests it.

If you have an event coming up and want to create something special, we can do that together, with stones of your choice, and metal of your choice. Feel free to message me and we'll create something amazing together.
