2. Tell us a little about yourself.
My passion is jewelry. I love to envision, design, and create beautiful pieces.

4. Who or what sparked your interest in making wedding-related items?
I would say I was turned on to creating wedding jewelry as I was doing so for friends and family. Also, my desire to make each bride’s BIG DAY special to her as it should be.

What is a little known fact, or something unique about your work that is interesting? One of my pieces was recently highlighted in the swag bags that were presented to celebrity guests attending the Grand Gala event of the Kentucky Derby this year. (Link to article)

ue after the wedding day.

Jamaica, mon!
