With beauty before me, I walk.

With beauty behind me, I walk.

With beauty below me, I walk.

With beauty all around me, I walk.

Navajo Prayer

Thank you for supporting my leap into the handcrafted jewelry world. I am Native American of Navajo descent and love working with my hands. I enjoy all of the visual arts and I am a web and graphic designer.

After taking a begining jewelry design class at my local bead shop, I wanted to make earrings that would match my own wardrobe. I could never find the style of earrings that were not priced out of my “student” budget. So I began to buy beads, wires, and tools to make my own jewelry.

I love the colors of beads, the textures, the use of tools, and the end result is a beautiful pair of earrings. Jewelry made especially for you is always nice. I hope you find something in these pages that will match your style. If you see something you like but want to change the colors, no problem, I can make jewelry to match your lifestyle.

Just let me know.

Again, thank you and enjoy looking at my jewelry.
