Here is a small snapshot of what I've done over the years.
Self taught, I acquired my jewelry making skills from the internet, books, classes, and practice, practice, practice. I also took design and fabrication classes at the local college and craft studios. I was dedicated to learning my new craft & becoming an expert at my new trade.
After a ton of work, I began selling to stores, and discovered my audience on the West Coast, I found myself the most incredible sales rep at the California Market Center. I ended up taking space & became a permanent designer in the Romy M showroom. Romy Migilazzo of Romy M, got my first large accounts like Fred Segal, Ron Robinson, both are well known celebrity shopped boutiques on the West Coast.
I began selling to larger stores in California and Vegas, this helped to get me great press, I then began to add accounts like Bloomingdales, Sundance Catalogs, and BCBG.
My jewelry has been sold in stores, catalogs, and online retailers. I have been featured mulitple times in magazines, newspapers, and television. Celebrities like Paula Abdul, Carrie Underwood, and Eve Longoria have worn my jewelry.
Below are some images & press that I collected over the years.
I manufactured many, many styles for BCBG.
