I am excited to head off to California tonight for my first time at West Coast Craft in San Francisco. Not only does this event feature work from an amazing array of designers and makers, it also benefits charity. Converse is teaming up WCC vendors to help fund Youth Art Exchange . Make sure to check out the custom sneakers (fail’s included!) and drop by and see me in booth D28! West Coast Craft runs from 10am to 6pm at the Fort Mason Center along the waterfront. Hope to see you there!
I have been quietly making more custom rings in the studio and I wanted to share the latest rings with yall! The first ring is a black rose cut diamonds, the second raw emerald, and the third is a meteorite. I am excited to continue to make special rings for special people, increasing my own skills as a jeweler and metalsmith while giving someone a truly unique piece they can cherish for a lifetime. I cant wait to see what’s next. Enjoy!
Feliz is back for its first spring show, just in time for Mother’s Day! Please join me for what is sure to be an amazing event with some really great designers. Ill be at the Palm Door this Sunday from 11-6 and I hope to see you there.

I am thrilled to be heading to the Fort Worth Modern for their monthly First Fridays in the gallery! Join me along with Leah Duncan and CANOE for a 1 day pop up shop in the museum shop from 5-8 pm. The Fort Worth Modern is one of the most amazing museums I have ever visited and I am honored to have my jewelry within its walls. I will have selections from the new collection, Mantle, alongside prints and textiles from Leah Duncan, and leather work by CANOE. We hope to see you there!
Once again, I am excited to share with you my new Spring 2015 collection, Mantle!
Playing on the themes established in Fall 2014, Mantle is a bit bolder, brighter, and more substantial. Maybe it was my new short platinum hairdo, but I felt inspired to break my mold a little with several pieces of minimal hammered shapes in bronze and silver that really shine. I was also excited to reinvent an old favorite in the shale bracelet with better wearability and a much improved clasp. I am pretty sure they are the unassuming star of this collection.
