After studying jewelry design & manufacturing at Gemological Institute of America, I opened my first studio space where I began carving, casting and experimenting with a variety of metals, gems and fabricating techniques.
Over the years, as my personal practice evolved, bold, organic, hand-carved symbols and talismans evolved into gemstone encrusted versions of themselves imbuing designs with the same power of gems, crystals and symbols I've employed throughout a variety of healing modalities.
Nearly a decade ago I was lured away from jewelry, and as I was able to see beyond the impeeding stress and unfamiliar waters, I recognized an opportunity to delve into 3D CAD Design. Mastering this skill led to expanding my creative catalog to include a variety of home and fashion accessories along with select custom furniture pieces. Upcoming Malibu Gem Lab collections will expand to offer a curated selection of these designs...
Can't wait to share!
It has been an incredible journey of challenges and miracles to this place...
New collections balance raw/refined and reflect the laid-back, beach vibe of my surroundings. I am currently designing and thriving in Malibu with my husband, son and our black cat, Dingo.
Always looking forward... xxx
