The relationship between the hawk and the field is intriguing... there is infinite freedom in a vast field under the open sky while the hawk invites us to be aware of what we feel in ourselves... to be observant of what we see around us and to listen to our own inner voice and spirit. It is this spirit that infuses my designs and collections.
My life-long love of gemstones, rocks, and treasures of the natural world inspires my jewelry designs. Each piece is hand fabricated by me and imbued with ample free spirit. I use reclaimed metal whenever possible and source responsibly mined gems with an emphasis on gemstones mined and cut in the United States.
From as far back as childhood summers in my mother's herb garden, I've been fascinated with plants and their healing properties. This appreciation of herbs has led me to extracting their therapeutic qualities to create apothecary products that nourish both body and soul. The herbs in my products are patiently solar infused in natural oils and then pressed by me, by hand. I source organic and fair trade ingredients whenever possible. You won't find any parabens, phthalates, or anything synthetic or strange in my products. Just all-natural ingredients from Mother Earth.
