I’ll be in Portland this week at the Society of North American Goldsmiths conference.
The trunk show on Saturday is free and open to the public, so come check out my jewelry and the work of other amazing metalsmiths from all over the country.
And if you are attending the conference, I’ll be working at the Student Exhibition on Wednesday and at Adorned Spaces on Thursday. Come say hi!
Swipe for more details.
I’m so freakin’ excited!!! 😁✨🙌🏼
Just finished fabricating these earrings. Handmade from start to finish. Contemporary new design with clean, balanced lines, plus a beautiful texture to add complexity.
PM me to pre-order. These are already going to Portland.
I love this cocktail ring so much I’ve decided to make a series with different gemstones. PM me if you’d like me to make one of a specific size for you. Otherwise they end up being a number 5, which fits me 😁
The red/orange stone is a Carnelian and the other one is a tiger’s eye. 😍
Officially sold and the new owner moves in tomorrow.
It’s bittersweet 😁😭
Our first house, that we were so proud to remodel with our own 4 hands. From knocking down walls, pouring concrete and building fences, to tiling and painting. What an adventure this was. We learned new skills, and we learned to work as a team. It thought us to have patience with one another, to overcome frustration when we made mistakes, and to be resilient when we had to re-do a project and keep working until late. I’d recommend it to any couple in need of therapy 😂😂 So many good memories in this house with our dogs Dexter and Samba, and with family and friends... change is good, so let a new chapter of our lives begin.
But what are we gonna do with ourselves now without a remodel project? 😂
Hit me up if you need design services, I’m already itching to start a new project.

The designer brain never stops working. On top of staying constantly aware of our surroundings and always seeking to innovate and improve products, designers need to set aside time to seek out inspiration, or let everyday observances become sources of inspiration.
In this case, I drew inspiration from one of my greatest experiences as a child and teenager: Dance!
The beauty of our bodies in movement, the perseverance to practice the same routine over and over again, the team spirit and the feeling of being part of the collective, the bruises, the nights poorly slept on tour buses, the adrenaline of being on stage, the music that feeds the soul... aaahh 😊
I’m not surprised it all served as inspiration for my first surface design illustration. “Dance, dance, otherwise we are lost.” - Pina Bausch
Have been creating some illustrations lately, turning them into patterns and applying them to different housewares. I specially love this one! What do you think?
Will have the clock and other products available for purchase on the website soon, or not that soon. #CreateNowCodeLater
From my first line of jewelry, 8 years ago, one of the philodendron pieces I made.
Think I’ll make some more pieces inspired by them, since the internet has been going Monstera crazy lately.
Split leaf philodendron aka Monstera Deliciosa.
Spring is here!!! I got outside to soak up some sun and observed the beauty of plants more closely today. And I noticed that birds are singing more vigorously with all the sunshine. Sun is life! Some say the Sun is the real God. #ibelieveit

Have been working like crazy on the house remodel. Yesterday I finally took a break, got all the paint off my hair and my hands, and looked like a normal person again. We got pictures of the interior of the house for the listing, and @biancabarretophotography snapped this one of me. In about a month I’ll have my new studio set up, and will be making jewelry again. I still have a few more pieces left if you wanna treat yourself, including the Unicycle earrings and the the Magnet ring I’m wearing on this picture. PM me to buy or click on the link in profile 😘
