I came to jewelry in a round-about manner – through my appreciation for the simple drama of natural stones. A painter and potter, I love the extraordinary color and textures created in nature: the rainbow of color and the range of graphic lines and soft watercolor landscapes.

My jewelry is simple and elegant, enabling wearers to make a statement with color, texture and high-quality materials. My goal is to create affordable and timeless pieces that can be worn by all generations on casual or formal occasions.

Beyond my interest in jewelry, I have been an active artisan for the past fifteen years, creating work in the fields of ceramics, photography, printmaking, painting, and furniture refinishing. I have illustrated three children’s books, published by Magination Press.

My artistic work complements my professional work in the field of urban education reform and policymaking. I have co-launched a think tank focused on preK-12 education reform; worked as a business consultant; taught art education and English; and traveled extensively throughout southern Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean. I have earned an EdM from Harvard’s Graduate School of Education, and a BA with Honors from Brown University. I have also completed studio art coursework at Penland School of Crafts; Radcliffe Ceramics Studio, Harvard University; and Massachusetts College of Art.
