Growing up in Charlotte, NC allowed me to enjoy all of nature’s gifts from the mountains to the sea. My love affair with the ocean began with long weekends playing in the sun and surf, collecting seashells, coral, and driftwood to create gifts for family and friends. After completing my degree from NC State and studying abroad in Mexico, I moved to Charleston to begin my career as a Marine Biologist. Walking along the beach one day my love of found objects returned when I came across some sea glass. Since I have always had an artistic side, I decided to try my hand at wire wrapping my new found treasures and my first jewelry pieces were born. For the past five years, I have been teaching myself new techniques, evolving as an artist, and turning my ideas into beautiful realities. I hope that you enjoy my collection as much as I do.
