These earrings, like most of my pieces, were intended to gain a connection to the past. For me jewelry is not just about adornment, but also storytelling. I strive to help the wearer find a story in every piece that I make.

I am a natural born collector. As a small child I gathered pebbles, shells, feathers, bits of glass or anything my young imagination could make into a relic from the distant past. At the same time, making things with our hands was simply something that we did in my family. I can’t imagine living my life any other way.
