About

I have always loved creating jewelry, from playing with bead sets as a kid to working with gemstones and precious metals in modern day. My jewelry is inspired by my other passions: mythology, nature, literature, and medieval art. Every piece is forged by hand in my studio, which is a room in my apartment and my happy place.

I began working under the name Blaqk Lace Jewelry back in 2010, mostly as a way to fund my creativity. I finally began my silversmithing journey began in early 2018 after a long time of being to nervous to try. I never imagined that this journey would take me so far! My pieces can currently be found online, in local retail spaces, and in-person at local artisan markets.
