After studying jewelry design & manufacturing at Gemological Institute of America, I opened my first studio space at 23 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 healing gems, crystals and symbols I've employed in my daily Kundalini practice and meditations.
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... Spring 2018, along with the launch of my new line, marks 25 yrs since I opened my first design studio. New pieces 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... xx
