Fall has always been my favorite time of year. The crisp air, the oranges, reds, browns and yellows of the changing foliage. The colors intensified, yet faded by the rain and fog. The fall harvests bountiful, the smell of wood burning stoves firing up for the impending winter.
I was born and raised in a small woodsy town in Maine. I spent my youth on my grandparents farm in Naples, riding ponies and exploring the wilderness around. The old farmhouse I came to know had a big red barn, great for exploring and climbing around in. Lace curtains, red and white damask wallpaper and the old cast iron cooking stove filled the old farmhouse with comforting sights, the sweet smell of wood and Maine boiled dinners.
My jewelry is reflected upon growing up in Maine and my Native American Mi'kmaq heritage. I create simple, heirloom quality, eclectic pieces of jewelry to be loved by the wearer and admired by all.
