I make statement jewelry pieces out of natural stones, gemstones, and organic materials. I love big, bold pieces and I consider my jewelry as timeless as a strand of pearls. I went to college in a small town, and I remember not being able to find jewelry that expressed my sense of style. One day I noticed this cool new bead shop. I hit it off with the owner, who taught beading lessons. I immediately began to wear the pieces that I made, and people kept asking me where I bought my jewelry—and my business was born!
The O Bracelet Project: I am so grateful to be included in this project. I have enjoyed the camaraderie that I have shared with the other artists, and my life will never be the same after meeting the women from Rwanda. The bracelet symbolizes an opportunity to learn, grow, and connect with the ladies of Rwanda and local New Orleans artisans.
