"I feel lucky to have been raised in Santa Barbara, California and my surroundings definitely influence my designs and feed my creative soul: which is why I have been making jewelry for over 30 years.  
I get up early in the morning to check the surf and most days I am at the beach at first light. If there isn't surf or I'm waiting for the tide to change, I search for sea glass and any treasures I might find. Most of my pieces are left in their natural state because I think they are beautiful that way;  you will find that most of my pieces are wrapped and not drilled making them unique and one-of-a-kind.
