If there were a map, there'd be no art,
because art is the act of navigating without a map.

Besottment
I am endlessly inspired by Hope's beautiful and meaningful hand-lettered journals.

 

Everyday Beauty
After years of making and selling jewelry, I decided to take my little shop to the next level and offer custom-order pieces. It was a big step for me at the time, but has been a blessing to live my passion and create special pieces for my customers.
