Rooted in architecture and interior design, blossoming into fine metals and jewelry

"How did you end up here making jewelry?" you might ask. To be honest, I didn’t always know I wanted to be a jewelry designer, although my parents would say the macaroni necklaces I made as a kid, told a different story. After time spent studying architecture and interior design, I finally found my calling when I stumbled into the jewelry department at the Savannah College of Art and Design. It was love at first sight!

three things i can't live without

Remy and Billy Drew, my dog and cat (...and my husband!)

My note pad with allll the colored sharpies.

Sushi.

you'd never guess that

I  grew  up  playing  sports  including  softball,  basketball,  soccer,  and  I  figure  skated.  I  even  played  college  basketball.  Then,  I  realized  the  responsibility  of  being  a  jewelry  designer....can’t  have  a  broken  wrist  or  arm!  Now  I’m  super  crazy  careful  of  anything  that  could  result  in  me  hurting  my  hands.    

i'm thankful for

For my supportive husband and family.  None of this business dream of mine would  be happening without their constant support and encouragement! 

my next venture is

I’ll be doing a residency and opening a studio and storefront in Lacoste, France this Summer in collaboration with the Savannah College of Art and Design, my alma mater! Be sure to follow along on social media…it’s going to be ablast

i started my business because

In 2015 at the age of 25 and I didn’t have a clue what I was getting into! It’s been a thrilling journey that I wouldn’t trade in. I’ve learned so much about myself and what makes me who I am.

my personal motto is

Personal Motto: Work hard, stay humble.
Business motto: People, process, product. – Taken from my business hero, Marcus Lemonis

What makes savannah for you?

The people and the scenery 100%.
Our city and our people are so supportive of small business makers like myself and it’s truly refreshing. Also, who wouldn’t want to live in a gorgeous area like Savannah? It’s inspiring as an artist and a designer!

Anything else you’d like us to know?

I won a national grant competition in 2017 called the Halstead Grant. It’s been HUGE for my business and helped take me to the next level! To learn more, visit my blog post about it!
