About

Since 2015 I've been designing handcrafted wire wrapped jewelry art and home décor for the greater Washington metropolitan area. I won the 2021 - 2019 Best of Rockville Award in the Artistic Jewelry Designer category by the Rockville Award Program. I understand that being a great Jewelry Designer and artist requires time, patience, attention to detail, and quality materials. Everything is original and made to stand the test of time.
