Meet The Designers/Makers
Since I was little, I have always enjoyed making things for myself and others. I love to use my hands to create. I have always loved picking and choosing different colored materials for someone that I think they will enjoy.
My earliest memories of crafting was with my mom. I remember heading to the fabric store and choosing fabrics with her to make clothing for me, my sister and other relatives. I remember feeling so excited to see what the fabric would turn into, dreaming of the fabric's potential and possibilities. I will always treasure our special time together at the fabric store where I first learned to dream about handmade creations.
I have always wanted to create my own line of jewelry that I can share. I love looking at colors that inspire me to create and bring joy and happiness to people’s lives. I enjoy collaborating with customers to discuss their jewelry ideas and other creations. It is exciting to use that information and create new custom pieces. I am so happy to be sharing my designs with others.
I was born and raised in rural Maine and grew up with a passion for using my hands. Drawing, sculpting and building led me to a degree in Studio Art at the University of Vermont. I met Paulina there in 1998 and we’ve been together ever since. We graduated and even though I never formally pursued an official career in the art field, I’ve never stopped creating. Working with leather and making jewelry and accessories has been something totally new for me and I’m so excited to be making these creations with my best friend.
